Avatar Kinect Coming This Spring

Company: Microsoft
Product: Avatar Kinect

During the CES 2011 keynote, Microsoft revealed sales numbers for Kinect, the Xbox 360's motion-controller add-on. To date, the Kinect has sold 8 million Kinect sensors worldwide. In addition to the impressive sales numbers, Ballmer also announced a new feature built around Kinect, Avatar Kinect.

The service, which will launch later this Spring as part of a free update, will allow Kinect owners to join "sets" (essentially, chat rooms) and talk, Avatar-to-Avatar, with other Kinect owners. Kinect will track the speaker's mouth and facial movements, as well as body movements, and update those movements to your Avatar.

Additionally, the service will also allow users to record their conversations and upload them to Facebook.
