The Nyko Zoom clips on atop the Kinect Sensor

ゲーム機の初代Kinect for XBox 用（０．８ｍより離れたところまでの性能）をもう少し近くでゲームプレイするためのXBox用Kinect専用の拡大鏡メガネだった。
The Zoom arrived about two weeks ago and since then I've had the chance to test it in varrying conditions. On the whole I have to say I'm genuinely very impressed.
Setup was a doddle, just stick the included plastic protection on your kinect and then clip the Zoom over the top. Thats it. All i can assume is that the other folk saying it damaged their kinect were a bit hasty and either slid it on the from the side or didn't spot the protective sticker in the box. Logically it needs to stop any light getting down the side of the lens when its in place so its going to be a tight fit. When in place, initially it does look a little odd but this is more likely because of being used to seeing it without. After a few days you will hardly notice it. The colour match and gloss finish is almost perfect.
We've used the Zoom with all our games and it works fine. It makes a major difference when 2 people are playing and works especially well when one player is a lot taller than the other. Something which was a bit annoying without the zoom if the game adjusted the tilt angle based on one of the other player. Both players can stand around 4 - 6 feet from the wall mounted kinect rather than the original 6-10.
In natural day light it works great. In the evenings under artificial light its not as good. My living room has spot lights in the ceiling and the reflections and shadows are magnified by the lense meaning it doesn't track anywhere near as well (your shape gym games seems worst affected). I found dimming my lights down a little helps. I suspect if in had a standard light fitting with a higher ceiling this would be further improved.
Excellent product for giving your kinect a new lease of life and it does work exactly as is described. You own room lighting is probably the biggest contributing factor to how well it will work for you. If you tend to play more during day light hours you will probably find this a very useful addition to your setup. If you are a night owl and have very directed lighting its probably not going to work that great.
Firstly this item has sharp metallic rims on the inside of it's lenses; if you try this for God's sake BE CAREFUL when you put it on or you'll damage the Kinect lenses. there is a sticker to cover the body and help stop scratching. but that won't help with the lenses.
When you do get it attached, be prepared to spend about an hour trying to find the correct height and pitch for kinect to find the floor (Many games will not start unless Kinect can complete auto-calibration, the first step of which is to locate the floor plane). As far as I can tell the lenses are not optically corrected so the compression is more exaggerated towards the edge of the vision field meaning Kinect thinks it's on a curved slope. I got it to work (sometimes) by putting a spacer under the base to pitch it up and down (since Kinect pitches itself, I have no idea why this works, but it does (sometimes). I also had to remove my deep pile squishy white rug (used so we can play in bare feet) or Kinect couldn't see the floor at all (Kinect sees it perfectly fine every time without Zoom).
When (if) you do get it working, fine control becomes almost impossible as movements in the centre of the field are normal-ish but moving too far left, right, forward or back results in sudden acceleration of your movements and Kinect constantly either losing tracking or throwing up "too close" or "too far" messages (even though in the Kinect window you can clearly see you're still in field). This is primarily what lead me to guess the there is no optical field correction on the lenses.
Sports is OK (but won't start unless you get the floor bit right), Adventures is not good, and forget about EVER playing Child of Eden.
I know this has worked for some people, but I'm not one of them; if you're desperate to play in a small space by all means try it, but do so on the basis of a £20 gamble and the understanding that you're probably throwing your money in a hole on the off chance you'll get lucky.
I have been using my Kinect with 'My Shape' which is an exercise game. I've not been able to get full use out of this game due to a lack of space in my living room.
Anything that involves big side lunges or steps backwards usually ends up with me falling over my couch, or the Kinect not being able to register my movements correctly.
So I over optimistically sent sent for the Nyko Zoom, naively telling myself that perhaps the bad reviews that it had were a result of customers not properly re-configuring the Kinect.
I was wrong!
I installed it according to the instructions, reconfigured the Kinect settings, and immediately I could see that it did make a difference as to how much of me the Kinect could see. However there was also a vignette type halo around the outer edges of the image where the camera could not see anything and lots of jumping 'artifacts' in the image.
Things got worse when I loaded up My Shape. The game creates a superimposed live image of yourself in a virtual environment so you can see yourself do the exercises. With the Nyko Zoom installed, instead of just picking up me, the Kinect camera was mistaking other objects and bits of furniture for players too. The Kinect was also not recognising my light coloured hair, erasing it from the final image.
I tested the Kinect with a block punching game, and with the Nyko Zoom, the Kinect seemed to be confused about where my head and torso started, and the result was that the blocks appeared too low for me to reach. Even trying to maneuver around the menu system was a nightmare and very inaccurate. Mysterious 'ghost' hands where appearing and spontaneously selecting things on the menu even when I was out of shot!
I spent ages trying everything to get this thing to behave, but the bottom line is, it doesn't work, and I suspect if such a device was viable in the first place, then Microsoft would have licensed one of their own.
Maybe the Nyko zoom works for some games better than others. However for something like an exercise game, that records and tracks your progress and amount of calories burnt, the Kinect really needs to be as accurate as possible. The Nyko Zoom reduces the accuracy of the Kinect to such an extent that it just isn't fit for purpose.
