What You Need to Know:
- When you think of Japanese idols, AKB48 is always one of the first groups to come to mind. Now, they're some of the first idols to step out into virtual reality!
- AKB48's All Night Nippon is a live weekly radio broadcast hosted by various members. Since today's broadcast, though, it's no longer confined to the radio.
- Thanks to a collaboration with online livestream video host Showroom, fans can now watch the broadcast live in full VR using their smartphones and mobile VR headsets. If you're interested, make sure to catch the next broadcast here on 25 August 01:00 Japan time!

This is a pretty cool idea! Like a VR television talk show with idols!
I kind of feel sorry for the AKB48 members though. I bet they were hanging out in their tracksuits before. Now they might have to dress up!
