The Project Bento viewer is available for download here for general user testing -- that's Linden Lab's codename for much-anticipated Second Life skeleton extensions which greatly expand the expressive range of avatars: Wings that actually flutter more or less naturally, fingers that actually grip, and so on. See video above for some early, pretty impressive examples. Much more on this emerging tech soon, as this is sure to get still more impressive soon.
Also, I'm offering special coverage to the first Bento avatar that's literally a bento:
Like so, but you know, more articulated. Because seriously, people, how hard could that be?
