Japan gets 3 foot Kinect tape measure to test room space

MS 'helping' gamers find out if their living space is big enough for motion cam

How do Japanese consumers - who traditionally have relatively small living spaces - know if their front room is big enough to accommodate Kinect?


According to Kotaku, Microsoft Japan's Kinect displays offer interested punters 2.9 foot (0.9 metre) long paper measures to take home and test if they have enough room for the motion cam.

You heard right - three foot paper tape measures for a device that requires a hell of a lot more space than that to work effectively.

We suppose you could always take two or three measures and chain them together.

Have you had any spatial problems with Kinect at home?
