The MV for Moso Calibration’s latest single, Mahou no Juice, which is to be released on 4 Apr 2015 has been revealed. This MV features a collaboration with a type of wearable device, “Hikaru Skirt”. All six members wore the skirt with lights of their own colours throughout the MV.
Did you spot anything familiar in the MV? If you think you spotted Akihabara, then you’re right! Half of the MV was shot in Akihabara while the other half was shot in a green-screen studio featuring various CG added as the background.
The “Hikaru Skirt” is a great idea for an idol group’s costume don’t you agree?
Mahou no Juice is the group’s seventh single, and the second single with the group’s two new members.
What is “Hikaru Skirt”?
“Hikaru Skirt” is the creation of an engineer called Kiyoyuki Amano and was first announced in 2014. The aim of the skirt was to showcase the “Zettai Ryouiki” with LED lights installed on the inside of skirts. You can see initial versions of the skirt on the official website. This time round marks the third upgrade of this wearable device. The upgrade introduces a new function, the lights flashes synchronises with the song according to data from an analysis of the song sent wirelessly to the skirts. Didn’t notice it? Watch the MV again!
Compared to previous versions of the skirt which only has lights in the inner facing side of the skirt, the current version has external facing lights as well. The brightness of the inner facing lights has also been increased.
