Next step in the marketing of music ? or just some curiosity.

What do you mean by fully digital? Lack of analog instruments or lack of physical media?
He means she a pop star that's not a human being.
Ever since Idoru and S1m0ne, I've hoped others would pick up on the trend. ;)
Japan has had 'artificial' stars for a while, and I've been harping on about the movie industry moving to totally computer created movies, and actors, for a long time.
Why pay 15 Million for one star? When 2 Million can make your movie, and artificially cast it all as well.

It wouldn't be hard to do given the current trend of superhero movies, GL :)
But I don't think they could pass off a digital actor in most movie genres right now
Have you not seen Advent Children? :P
And technology has improved since then.
All we needed was digital voices for the FF characters, and for them to become 'virtually' real people, and we've begun.
Artificial Movie stars, with artificial voices. With their own personalities and fan base!

The FF characters were not very convincing to me though. :(
Very impressive graphics, yes. Replacement for a human actor? I didn't really think so.
I still don't feel like technology is to the point yet where I can look at an actor onscreen in a movie and be unable to differentiate whether they are really human or digital.
^ Give it a couple years >_> We're getting there quick.
