You might think you have become so numb to the headlines of NFT, but there’s one you might get caught in the backwash of. Cheesy Linkin Park jokes aside, the band’s lead singer is investing in a new company that turns users and their avatars into human NFTs in video meetings.

Mike Shinoda may be best known for co-founding one of the most popular 90s and early rock bands of all time, but Tech Crunch announced Thursday which he also invests in Hologram. Hologram currently exists as a Google Chrome extension and allows users to login with crypto wallets and become your animated NFT avatar.

The company says its real-time algorithm uses machine learning but runs in the browser and doesn’t collect any user data. It can also change your voice.

A short extract the brand posted on Twitter showed the NFT host in real time in Google Meet, with six users jumping on the call to use animated avatars that tracked their movements and moved as they did. The principle resembles an Instagram or TikTok filter in terms of the end result, but it is much more robust.

It’s pretty cool that people can, in theory, express themselves however they want through whatever artwork they choose. This is part of what makes Hologram so appealing – it’s not every day that a crypto project is relatively trouble-free.
