Avatar Kinect Technology


At CES 2011, Microsoft unveiled Avatar Kinect, a new Xbox 360 app that uses the Kinect camera to track your facial expressions for a personalized, glorified chatroom. Just what does Avatar Kinect see? More than you might think.

This brief tech demo illustrates how Kinect follows the head and multiple points on a person’s face to interpret their expressions and movement. What is now being translated into rather simple emotes and animation on Xbox Live Avatars will hopefully be used for greater purposes in the future.
