Avatar Kinect brings face recognition to your Xbox 360 Avatar

Microsoft has launched Avatar Kinect for Xbox 360 Kinect owners allowing them to talk as their Avatar with other friends.

Microsoft say that the new system will track your face, including your mouth, your eyes and even your eyebrows.

Coming later this year for Xbox 360 Gold Live members as a free update, Microsoft is hoping the 8 million Kinect owners around the world will sit in up to 15 different environments talking with their mates like they currently can’t do.
