We’ve learned via Famitsu that a new set of Hako Vision boxes have been revealed – and this time they feature the virtual singer and idol Hatsune Miku.

The actual box is simply a bunch of visual tricks that utilize your smart phone (no specific brand is mentioned, as the visuals come from a video program).

The rendering itself comes from the aforementioned video program, which feeds the video, face down, into the box. Previous Hako Boxes saw live “3D” renders of various mecha from the Gundam series.

There appears to be a few different boxes, each of which being able to display one of four songs in total.

There’s even two different bromide cards, as well as a pamphlet, that you can collect as well.
