Avatar Kinect to Project Your Expressions Into a Virtual World
Today, Microsoft announced Avatar Kinect, a new Xbox LIVE social experience that uses the sensor's facial-recognition capabilities to project your face and your expressions into a virtual word.
When it rolls out later this spring, Avatar Kinect will enable you to hang out with up to seven friends in creative themed environments, from talk-show sets to a tailgate party, projecting your facial expressions and voice.
When your virtual-self arrives at the designated gathering place, you will — in real time — see your friends' smiles (or frowns) projected on the image of them that pops up on your screen.
Buzz about Avatar Kinect began after Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer previewed the new technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
