Not fortunate enough to live in the 10ft x 10ft clear box that is required to play Kinect, neither are we, so Nyko have come up with a little lens adapter that should allow mere mortals to experience what Kinect has to offer without bringing in the furniture removers.
The Zoom reduces the play range required to enjoy Kinect software by up to 40%, allowing you to play closer to your TV. Zoom’s wide angle lens also enables two people to play in an area normally only suitable for a single player making it ideal for those in smaller apartments or dorm rooms. Specially designed optical lenses fit over the Kinect sensor and clip into place making set up a breeze with nothing to plug in. No additional software or calibration is required. The design of the Zoom blends seamlessly with the look and feel of the Kinect. The Zoom opens up a whole new world of Kinect play to those who previously lacked the space required to fully enjoy it.
Currently the Nyko site has this scheduled for release, with a $29.99 price tag. But fear not, even if this does not see a UK release this will be compatible with UK Kinect units.
