Xbox launches Avatar Kinect: A review by my avatar | GeekWire

[…] As my avatar explains in the video above, the application makes use of the physical controller as the default mechanism for activating special visual and sound effects during the chat sessions. Microsoft’s technology acts like a virtual producer, controlling the camera movements, but using the application still took some getting used to, at least in my experience. It’s also important to talk relatively slowly and keep your head up, looking in the direction of the Kinect sensor.

Microsoft sees this as a first step, and it’s looking at future applications for the technology even outside of games, in areas including health care.

I have a Kinect, can’t wait to make the most of such phenomenal possibilities.
