The lights are on
If you're dying to play a Kinect game but don't have the recommended six feet of space the body-scanning peripheral requires, you might be in luck. Today Nyko has announced a price and release date for a new peripheral that makes gaming in smaller rooms possible.
Nyko Zoom is a clip-on lens that the company says will cut Kinect's space requirements by 40%. It will sell for $30, and was nominated by a number of outlets for Best Hardware of Show at this year's E3. We didn't get a chance to check it out, but if it does what Nyko claims, it seems like a no-brainer for Kinect owners who lack six feet of empty space in their living rooms...which we're guessing is just about everyone?
Nyko Zoom will be available in all major retail outlets on August 23.

hahaha too bad I don't have a Kinect lol but its pretty cool still.
that sounds cool
Now I feel more comfortable getting kinect, since the distance is what made me not want to get it the first time around.
looks pretty cool
this is great! I will for sure buy this thing...are they just little magnifiers?
Hmm might be more willing to buy a kinect with this peripheral.
Luckily I have a very spacious living room, but yea that little fella should sell quite a few units.
while i have a kinect altho i'm not a fan of it hopefully this'll be great to use with it i love nyko products i've gotten so far
