Avatar Kinect hitting Kinect Fun Labs in July

Facial expression recognition tech still on the way

Avatar Kinect will arrive as a part of Kinect Fun Labs in July.

The Avatar Kinect software will enable Microsoft's motion sensor to recognise your facial expressions and represent them on screen, in a step forward Microsoft promises is "just the beginning" of what its technology will offer over the coming years.


A Microsoft representative reportedly told Joystiq we can expect Avatar Kinect to come to the gadget laden Fun Labs suite in July.

Avatar Kinect was thought to be arriving last month but didn't. Obviously.
