Games Peripheral manufacturer Nyko have just released a new device that allows gamers to play the Kinect in smaller plays. The Nyko Zoom which is described on their official site as a “Play Range Reduction Lens for Kinect” reduces the space requirement by 40 percent.
A wide angle lens makes it possible for two people to play in an area where it would normally only be possible for one person to play. The specially designed optical lenses fit over the Kinect sensor and clips into place; there is no additional software or power supply need which means setting up is simple.
Not only that the Zoom has been designed to seamlessly blend in with the design of the Kinect. So if your one of the many people who have struggled to enjoy Kinect because of the small space your playing in this is a must have.
The Zoom was first shown at E3 2011 and was nominated for Best Hardware in Show by IGN, GameSpot, Machinima, and G4 X-Play. If you want to purchase the Zoom you can do so on their official website Nyko.com or at select retailers, priced at $29.99.
