Nyko has announced a new Zoom peripheral for the Kinect designed to allow gamers in small spaces to play their motion capture games.

The Zoom’s specially designed optical lenses fit over the Kinect sensor, clipping into place with no wires and nothing to plug in.

“The Zoom opens up a whole new world of Kinect play to those who previously lacked the space required to fully enjoy it,” Nyko said in a statement. “The Zoom reduces the play range required to enjoy Kinect software by up to 40 percent, allowing you to play closer to your TV. Zoom’s wide angle lens also enables two people to play in an area normally only suitable for a single player, making it ideal for those in smaller apartments or dorm rooms.”

The product will retail for $29.99. Check out the Nyko Zoom here.
