The following video shows how a new addition to the Japanese pop group AKB48 was created (a Virtual pop star) by combining the elements of the other six girls.

The video also contains a link to a website that allows you to create your own pop star combination.

This reminds me of the old software / camera packages they used to sell, so women could try a virtual hairstyle. We had fun with that one, by taking pictures of my wife’s friend and even her husband lol, import it into the computer and see how they look with various hair styles.
