At CES, Microsoft has announced the Avatar Kinect program, which is coming to the Xbox 360 this spring.

The program will allow people to have a live virtual conversation through their Xbox 360s using the Kinect’s motion tracking features. You will be able to use your Live Avatar to carry on your conversation in a virtual environment. All your actions, emotions and expressions will translate over to your avatar.

Now we all know how disappointed I was about the quality of the Kinect’s video chat program. The picture quality and video motion were terrible. This looks to be an improved way for people to chat through Kinect, and provide an alternative to that service.

Avatar Kinect will require gold membership and will be coming in the spring to Xbox 360 owners who have a Kinect.
