Pritect Sensor Cover





Pritect Sensor Cover 


It is interesting to me to see how different minds come to the same conclusions. We have talked internally here at Family Friendly Gaming quite a bit about the potential for danger with cameras in the gaming rooms (or living rooms, or where ever the Xbox 360 Kinect is). I personally was very opposed to the idea of a camera watching me game. I recognize how it changes gaming. But the thought of someone being able to use the Kinect to peep is a very unnerving one.

When it comes to the Kinect Sensor the Playstation Eye, I keep them unplugged when they are not being used. The whole being watched thing is not my cup of tea. But then I am not exactly the average every day parent. I was a Cryptologist in the Air Force so safety in terms of security is rattling around in my brain somewhere all of the time.

Our good friends over at Catalyst Components have come up with an interesting idea that will help protect families. That idea comes in the form of Pritect Sensor Cover. This molded piece of plastic slides right over the Kinect Sensor. It completely blacks out the camera. So it can not see you. It is easy to slide on and slide back off.

The Pritect Sensor Cover has a hole in it on the front. This allows you to see the Xbox 360 logo on the Kinect sensor. I have no idea why that is important. Maybe it is something Microsoft wanted. Its not like I ever confuse my Wii sensor or Playstation Eye with the Kinect Sensor. Maybe you do. Maybe they were worried about it.

The really cool thing about the Pritect Sensor Cover is it does not stop the verbal commands. So I can still verbally move around the menus of the Xbox 360 by talking to it. The camera screen comes up and it is completely blacked out. Some may ask why can't they put a blanket over the Kinect Sensor. Electronics and quickly combustible materials is something you should stay way from.

The price of Pritect Sensor Cover is reasonable at $14.99. I actually found it on Amazon currently on sale for a few dollars cheaper. If security is a concern, or peeping Toms, then you should check out the Pritect Sensor Cover. Companies may also use what they see to cater advertising directly towards you. Unless you find a way to protect yourself.
