The Xbox One’s original requirement for the Kinect 2.0 sensor to always be connected and active led many gamers to raise concerns about their privacy. Microsoft eventually caved in on that requirement, but anyone upgrading to the new Xbox One now has an absolute guarantee that the Kinect 2.0 sensor won’t keep tabs on them with this new accessory from PDP that completely blocks both of its cameras.
For $US20, you’re actually buying a plastic mount that allows the Kinect 2.0 sensor to clamp to and hover above a flat-screen TV. But as a bonus the mount includes a black plastic snap-on eyepatch that completely blocks and blinds both the Kinect 2.0’s RGB and IR cameras. It’s perfect for the casual gamer who doesn’t mind playing the occasional arm-flinging Kinect title, but who also used up all the aluminium foil in their brainwave-blocking hat. [Amazon via Ubergizmo]
