Avatar Kinect now at Xbox Live Marketplace

The Avatar Kinect is now available as a free download from the Kinect Fun Labs section on Xbox Live Marketplace, which is two days earlier than originally expected. The app lets users with the Xbox 360 games console and the Kinect add-on control their avatars over the motion-sensing add-on, including facial expressions and body movements. Users have the ability to produce their own avatar TV shows, much like a podcast, and to chat between friends online.

The 660MB app includes 24 virtual environments within which up to eight avatars can interact. Users can film scenes and share it over Kinect Share. The environments include the Talk Show Stage, the Performance Stage and the Sports Party Stage, among others.

At the same time, the Kinect Sparkler app arrives on July 28. It makes finger painting an aerial light show, and uses users' bodies as a stencil and their fingers used to paint. Drawing is available in 3D, with sparklers used to write words. Kinect Sparkler will cost 240 Microsoft Points, however.
