Avatar Kinect ready for download

Larry Hryb, or Major Nelson as we refer to him occasionally, informs that the “new Xbox Live social experience” going by the name of Avatar Kinect, has been made available for download as of a few days ago.

Avatar Kinect will see Kinect users socialize, through their avatar, using Microsoft’s motion-sensor to interact in a variety of virtual sets such as a party or a talk show, among others, with friends and family. Real-life expressions and voices will be rendered through the virtual you thanks to facial and aural recognition, something Microsoft GM Pete Thompson believes “has tremendous headroom for future innovation from Microsoft and its partners.”

We bet Turn 10 Studios will attest to that.
