Gestures are an inventory item type (shown as ) that allow you to create a series of steps which trigger your avatar to animate, play sounds, and emit text chat. These can be used for practical purposes or to amuse friends. For example, a cartoon "Squish!" noise accompanied by your avatar falling down. In Second Life culture, many gestures are openly circulated like memes, as they add a lot of spark to social situations.
