aura[4]Aura is a Windows Phone 7 application that will use your 3D Xbox Live avatars to answer the million dollar Twitter question – “What’s happening?”

Aura will make your dynamic Xbox Live avatar play guitar or jog if that’s what you’re doing. In case you’re on a flight, your avatar will be sitting on a plane and waving. Aura will create scenes around your avatar and your current status.

  • Show what you are doing
  • See what others are doing
