Mount Your Kinect Above Your TV In Tight Spaces

The Microsoft Kinect is a great gaming accessory for motion and exercise games, but if you have a small living room or apartment, it can be pretty tough to use. One easy way to put some distance between you and the lens so your Kinect sees you more easily is to mount it on the ceiling or in another high place over the television, instead of right on top or below.

This tip comes from the folks at Unplggd, who note that moving your Kinect over the TV looking down over the living room is a good way to compensate for a limited amount of space between you and the TV screen, if you have a small living room. They also make a few other suggestions, like picking up a Nyko Zoom, and finally marking the spot on the floor where the Kinect works best so you don’t have to struggle with it the next time you use it.
