Avatar Kinect Coming Out This Spring For Xbox Live

Microsoft's previously announced Avatar Kinect will be launching this Spring through Xbox Live. Avatar Kinect will be able to track features like your smile, laugh, and even the raise of your eyebrows while you chat online with friends using your Xbox Live Avatar in virtual theme worlds.

"When it rolls out later this spring, Avatar Kinect will let you hang out and socialize with seven of your friends in a simulated environment,” said Umaimah Mendhro, a senior product manager for Microsoft Startup Business Group. “The gathering spots will range from the set of a late-night talk show to a tailgate party to a magical forest.”

According to Mendhro, Avatar Kinect will let you and up to seven of your friends in one of these gathering spots. Watch the video of Avatar Kinect in action after the break.

I honestly cannot wrap my head around Avatar Kinect, especially since the Kinect has an actual camera on it. Maybe it will be fun, but I'm not buying into it. Sure I love all of the Avatar items I can buy (yes I have every Final Fantasy 13 outfit) but I just can't ever see myself using this. What about you? Are you excited for the Avatar Kinect service?
