Concealing sensor with one way glass or reflective material RRS feed

  • Question

  • Howdy all

    Does anyone know if there is a way of concealing a Kinect sensor with some sort of light reflecting material that doesn't effect the performance of the sensor and that also reflects any light projected on it. We're trying to project back onto a wall that the sensor is located on but we want the sensor to be as invisible as possible. Any help appreciated.

    Hopefully this is not off topic.

  • Just a thought: Have you tried placing it behind a filter which only allows infrared light to pass trough?

    I don't know how expansive such material is, but I know it exists and the depth sensor uses IR to measure the depth.

    Edit: Just found this:

    Place that in front of the Kinect and cover the rest of it with some black material could maybe do the trick?
