In case you haven’t heard, Xbox will be releasing ‘Avatar Kinect’ soon (see second video below). This will basically be a chat show environment where your avatar will simulate all your real life gestures and movements, including facial expressions and lip syncing. The vid below shows a basic overview of how this works and is worth a quick watch. The Kinect is turning out to be a very clever bit of kit but there is a serious lack of good games for it at present. As I’ve always said the potential is great and this bit of facial mimicking only adds to that but if there are no good games to support it then that’s all it is, a clever bit of kit. Oi – Microsoft, start making some good games for this please!!
