Now this thing is so cool…you can create your own image of yourself, your “avatar”… this is just the still image, but the real one can move and stuff. Cute.

What’s an Avatar?

A graphical image of a user, such as used in graphical real-time Chat applications, or, a graphical personification of a computer or a computer process, intended to make the computing or network environment a more friendly place.

This term refers to an interactive representation of a human in a virtual reality environment; term was popularized by Neal Stephenson’s novel ‘Snow Crash’.
