Microsoft has launched a new feature that allows you to create customised images starring your very own Xbox Live avatar.
Using the Free Your Avatar tool, you can choose from a range of backdrops and props such as birthday scenes, party hats and balloons. A special range of romantically-themed stuff is currently available for obvious topical reasons.
Plus you can upload your own backdrops and stick your avatar in front of the Eiffel tower, say, or on Catford Island. You can also "insert your avatars into your favourite movie scene", perhaps one starring Tera Patrick.
Once you've created your image, you can send it as an ecard. It's The Future, you know.
You can start mucking about with Free Your Avatar right now via Xbox Live, or over at Xbox.com.
