Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai’s AR Feature Lets You Take Vocaloid Photos With Your Mii


Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai lets you view augmented reality Vocaloid performances, but we don’t know much more about this feature at the moment, other than that you can take 3D photos of the AR models and include your Mii in the same picture as well.
