You might recall us talking about the Nyko Zoom for Kinect last month. The thing broke cover at E3 and promises to make it easier to play your Kinect games on the Xbox 360 in smaller rooms. The Zoom for Kinect is a clip on lens system.
The lens system zooms in on the user and allows the gamer to play with only about four feet of space. By default, the Kinect needs the user about eight feet from the sensors. I can tell you if you are closer than that the minimum distance, the odds of things working smoothly are slim.
We already knew most of the details on the Zoom for Kinect this side of the launch date. Nyko has announced that the Zoom for Kinect will launch on August 23. The device will sell for $29.99 and should make many fans of the Kinect that don’t use it much because of the accuracy issues in small spaces very happy.
