Yes, you haven’t heard this wrong. According to AnimeNewsNetwork (ANN), a figure of Hachune Miku will be set to launch aboard a rocket in the US later this month. This month’s launch, part of the eXtreme Performance Rocket Ships (XPRS) contest that will take place at the Black Rock Desert in Nevada from September 18 to 21, will only be expected to reach an attitude of about 2 kilometers, which is far from the lowest international recognized standard of going to space (80-100 km).

And for more info and a video about it just continue reading after the break. (more…)

Ah, it sure has been nice during the past week, not only was Miku’s birthday on Aug 31st celebrated in fashion in Japan with a festival being held in her name but also, the much awaited Vocaloid Nendoroid Puchi set was up for pre-order on the same day as well. And the set proved to be so popular that the online reservations on Hobby Search were already closed shortly after the pre-order was out initially. I had a bit of trouble pre-ordering it but eventually I have decided to pre-order with one of the local figures shop here as it’s much cheaper than pre-ordering online. ^ ^

And anyway I have noticed by now that some of the YouTube videos which I mentioned in the previous Weekly Vocaloid Music posts aren’t working, and that’s because the uploader got his account suspended while trying to upload the performances from MikuFes 09 (that’s the festival celebrating Miku’s birthday, if you are not aware). But I will get around to replacing the videos mentioned in the posts very soon so that you can get to enjoy the videos and the music as well.

And in the meanwhile, let’s proceed with this week’s Vocaloid music, shall we? (more…)
