Your Kinect will need 40 percent less space next month when peripherals manufacturer Nyko Technologies releases the Zoom for Kinect. The clip-on peripheral will be available nationwide in stores and online August 23 for an MSRP of $29.99. With a series of proprietary lenses and a simple clip-on design, Nyko says the Zoom lets players enjoy Microsoft Kinect games in 40% less space, and requires no additional power or batteries. This would make it perfect for apartments, dorms and small living rooms, with the Zoom allowing two people play Kinect in a space that would otherwise only accommodate one person and is compatible with any Kinect game. Announced at E3 2011, the Zoom was nominated for Best Hardware in Show by IGN, GameSpot, Machinima and G4 X-Play.
