Microsoft is working on hyper realistic avatars

We all know what the current Xbox Avatars look like: cartoony, colorful and without any detail. Apparently Microsoft thinks this needs to change in the future because they showed off a prototype of some new avatars, and they look extremely realistic! More details after the jump.

Realistic avatars
According to the spokesman these new avatars will look as realistic as a photograph and will have fully realistic facial animation too. He's also saying that when combined with Kinect a full body avatar can be made that accurately and realistically resembles the player and will also show the facial expressions of the player. Definitely something very cool when combined with Avatar Kinect!

Anyway, check it our for yourself in the video shown below:

This is all still in the research phase, so don't expect to see it launched anytime soon. But it's still cool to see what Microsoft is working on and it's good to know that in the future we might have ultra realistic video conference by means of Avatar Kinect! Go Microsoft!
