The Korean maker SBS Artech revealed the design for the new Korean Vocaloid character "SeeU" on Tuesday (pictured at right). In June, SBS Artech showcased a song by a synthesized Vocaloid voice that is based off the voice of up-and-coming Korean idol singer Kim Tahi.
In a separate development, the LAWSON convenience store chain's new mascot, "Akiko-chan" will receive a synthesized Vocaloid voice makeover to become "Akikoroid-chan," who will act as a navigator for LAWSON's new Nico Nico Douga channel. The channel will officially launch with "Akikoroid-chan's" new look on September 6.
"Akiko-chan" will also act as the company's spokesperson on more than 10 different social media services including Twitter.
