Finally Microsoft has released the much awaited "Avatar Kinect" for XBox 360 users.
According to Microsoft, Avatar Kinect lets you interact with or hang out with up to 7 other friends in 24 virtual stages ranging from a late-night talk show set to outer space to a sports tailgate party.To make the cyber socializing more real, Kinect's camera tracks gestures and facial expressions - eyebrow raises, smiles, belly laughs and all.
Kinect Sparkler, available later this week, lets players use their fingers to draw sparkling lines that whirl glowing, gold stars in front of, behind, and around 3-D photographs of themselves.
Users can share creations from both Avatar Kinect and Sparkler with the wave of a hand on the Fun Labs Live friends feed or uploading to KinectShare.com. From KinectShare, users can share their creations on Facebook or download them to their computers, email them to friends, and more.
Avatar Kinect makes all kinds of interactive experiences possible - from hosting virtual events to creating your animated shows to just hanging out virtually with friends.
Avatar Kinect is free for Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers who have Kinect, although it will be available to non-Gold-subscribers for 45 days so everyone can try it. Kinect Sparkler will cost 240 points on Xbox LIVE.
