The Kinect beams viewed from behind IR goggles

1 min read


Have you ever wondered how the Kinect is actually seeing and tracking you? Well it’s pretty simple really it just shoots out laser points of light to form a massive grid across your entire lounge and then tracks you moving against them.

Granted I am sure there is a little bit more to it than that but as you will see from the video below the laser points of light exist and you can see them as well if you picked up that collectors set for Modern Warfare 2 that came with the IR goggles.
