A group of Oklahoma teens who launched their own augmented reality game last year have teamed up with Japanese pop star Hatsune Miku, who will be a playable character in their game, Wrist World.

Putting Miku in a virtual world isn't far-fetched. She already lives in the virtual world.

Created by Crypton Future Media, Miku is a synthesized character built around a customizable software voicebank. Her image, designed with turquoise hair and resembling an anime-inspired teen girl, has previously performed with Lady Gaga as a hologram and was scheduled to appear at Coachella.

Wrist World is a series of augmented reality slap bracelets that encompass a holographic game experience when scanned with the Wrist World Mobile App. The new Hatsune Miku band will allow players to watch Miku perform new songs and dances, right on their wrist, in addition to unlocking new Miku missions on the original bands.
