Avatar Kinect has finally launched, and is available to download right now on the marketplace! The Gadget is available for free to all Xbox Live members until September 8th when it will be available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers only, and can be downloaded via Kinect Fun Labs.

Avatar Kinect gives you full control of your Xbox Live Avatar, letting you interact in a variety of environments with friends and, for the first time with Kinect, control your characters face via facial tracking. You can also watch back, edit and save your performance before posting it to popular social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The software also comes with 8 achievements for a total of 50 points.

Also coming to Kinect Fun Labs very soon is Kinect Sparkler. Demoed at this years E3, Kinect Sparkler lets you transform an image captured by Kinect using finger tracking to paint light in 3-D, moving the sparkling trail in front of and behind the foreground image. You can then view your creation, changing angles by moving your head, before sharing it on KinectShare.com. Kinect Sparkler will be available later this week on June 28th for 240 Microsoft Points.
