The latest leak is a picture of "Avatar Kinect". Avatar Kinect will be a system for Xbox Live avatar interaction in a separate chat room, where players talk to each other outside of games.

 

The feature is meant to roll out with the next Xbox update and is also rumored to include some stand-up interaction for chat, instead of the traditional headset or webcam chat style. Not long now!
