Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

Nyko's 2011 accessories schedule previous this week, and nowadays i got a number of excellence moment with a gear. I looked into Zoom Kinect, a lay down of lenses intended for Microsoft's favorite sensor bar that allows those existing in very small domiciles be the controller devoid of reorganizing their furniture. The add-on worked perfectly while on Kinect Adventures -- Kinect had no problem tracking activities although I was some feet closer toward the sensor than suggested. Does anybody else try it out?

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

If you're one of those people who want to buy Kinect, but do not because of a play area too small, then there is a good news for you. The Nyko Zoom has acquired a price and release date. Presented at E3, it has received many rave reviews since its inception. Remember that this object is a lens that attaches to the sensor and reduces the space required by Kinect 40%. Unfortunately, these words are intended only for residents of the United States, where the Nyko Zoom will be priced at $ 29.99

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

Kinect has been tested for performance, accuracy and environmental conditions thoroughly. Any modification can impact the overall performance of Kinect. With Nyko Zoom is an essay for the Kinect module, several sets of lenses in front of the 3D camera. This is the minimum distance that must be made between the player and camera must be drastically reduced. Microsoft itself sets a minimum distance of two meters; with Nyko Zoom I will reduce this minimum value of 1.20 meters. This corresponds to a "savings" of 40 percent.

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

I do not know about you, but among my friends many have not because you've bought the kinect space. At least two meters, this seems to be the right distance to enjoy the device from Microsoft. Those who cannot afford so much space in the room (or does not have a right living) as it should do? If before it was hesitant to buy the Xbox 360 with Kinect attached, enough to buy a lens in the $ 30 Nyko called Zoom, once applied to virtually Kinect this slow makes you seem much farther away than it actually is! So even with a smaller space would be perfectly possible to play with the device.

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

Nyko has not beyond the censure battery 3DS and has released a rough housing competent of escalating the battery existence of handheld 3 times. However not barely the battery is integrated Shock n 'Rock Nyko as well provides 4 incorporated speakers and trembling criticism for games. I believe they forgot to discharge somewhat that would improve the 3D visualization, but currently appear excellent alternatives to get better the employ and presentation of this couple of toys.

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

Kinecta And that really works?, If this is how Microsoft has not included directly in Kinect, if they are only a few simple lens (something like a wide angle) I think Microsoft would have gained much more market share by reducing Kinect space requirements with a simple question. Which leaves me little doubt of the operation of this accessory? But if a buyer really works will be safe.

Re: Nyko's unveiled Zoom for Kinect

Usually when you play this kind of game (like the wii or ps move), you must have a minimum of space or its case sensitive! So the `lens` seems more a gimmick than anything else right? After that returns only $ 30 so for those who want to take a chance, they will not lose much if any! Excellent, I just have a problem with the short distance to writing software, if it could make detection finer by the way, why not? Have now to see if this accessory will hold these promises.
