A new peripheral launching in the Autumn will enable Kinect gamers to enjoy the motion-sensing experience in 40% less space, claims Japanese manufacturer Nyko Technologies.

With a series of proprietary lenses and a clip-on design, the Zoom was design so users can enjoy Kinect in much smaller spaces and requires no additional power or batteries.

Nyko says that it has taken out multiple patents to protect and ensure the first and only play space reduction lens for Kinect remains a mainstay of the Nyko line.

Zoom has launched in the U.S. at a retail price of $29.99 and is available from Gaming Zap in the U.K. priced £32.95.

Good idea - too expensive though. I only paid £80 for my kinect, so £30 to reduce the chances of bumping into my sofa. Sorry make it £15-20 and I might consider.
Don't you just love the exchange rate too. $29.99 translates to £32.99
I think they could make a lot of sales though. I know at least 2 people who won't get the Kinect because the room with their 360 is too small. The company also says they've patented the whole thing, so they would have exclusivity. Exchange Rate is funny though :D.
