Privacy Cover for Xbox One covers Kinect's camera

0

Proving once more where there's a need, there's a product

Are you among one those who harbor deep reservations about what the Kinect camera will be capturing in your living room? Afraid that Microsoft will gather tons of personal data and sell it to the highest bidder? And would using a post-it note to cover the camera's lens be an eyesore?

Well, don't worry. Clearly observing an opportunity to cash-in on concerns, InterWorks Unlimited has made available the Xbox One Privacy Shield. It's a bit of plastic that fits over the Kinect 2 camera with a sliding switch that covers or exposes the lens, and clearly indicates which state the Shield is in with a bright orange rectangle.

I think it's brilliant. Not the product, mind you, which is a $20 piece of plastic covering a lens. It appears to blend in well with the Kinect's aesthetic, and that's nice, but it's just a piece of plastic.

No, I love that a company is preying on (justifiable) paranoia while simultaneously offering an alternative solution for any apologists of Kinect to point to as being a reason for people to just shut up about this. I hope they sell millions of the things.
