Xbox Avatars: The Art of Expressing Yourself with Technology

As Xbox Avatars approach general availability, the Xbox team will share the vision, design and technical work that makes our Avatars expressive, creative and inclusive. We’ll talk about some aspects of our Avatar system that allow the richness of customization, including design direction, engine architecture, seemingly infinite color options, cloth and joint physics, limb replacement system, mounts such as wheelchairs and our backwards compatibility mode.
