What is Avatar Kinect for Xbox 360?

Full body control over Avatars, claims report.

Kinect owners may soon be able to interact with each other using their Avatars in a dedicated area.

Website Glimpse Dog (via NeoGAF) published leaked slides it claims will feature in Microsoft's Consumer Electronics Show keynote in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (early Thursday morning UK time).

According to Winrumors.com, "The slides reference Avatar Kinect, which Microsoft is set to introduce at CES. The software update, delivered over Xbox Live, will allow Kinect owners to interact with each other using their Avatars. The Avatars will have a separate area, much like Nintendo's Mii channel, that will allow for users to control them using Kinect and interact to watch content or play games."

Microsoft will stream its CES keynote live on Facebook.
