It looks like you; its face contorts like yours into smiles, laughs, and grimaces. It even talks like you. The digital entity in question is what may become Microsoft's next generation avatar for its Xbox Live gaming network. While the photo-realism may be a turn off for some people, it could offer some stunning personalized gameplay.
