So the scoop on Avatar Kinect, What we got from the whole thing was that you can now move around with your avatar mirroring your every move including your facial expressions. Its cool to look at yourself in 3d space, but whats might get ya going will be having conversations with your friends in 3d space and record them.
Look at it as pulling up a virtual lawn chair, inviting your buds to a party and talking about last weeks game while pressing record for some funny conversation repeats. We here at Nerd Junkies think about taking it further with a live show and reviews just in our avatars. Would you watch us be Nerds in virtual space? Or are we just nuts?
