With the snakebyte cam:clip your days of trying to figure out the best spot for your Kinect™ camera for Xbox 360® are finally over. The robust mounting clip affixes the original Kinect™ camera to any LCD/LED or plasma TV with a maximum width of 4.3 inches. Not only is your Kinect™ sensor well stabilized, but it will also improve precision in detecting movement in front of the camera.
One of the handy features of the snakebyte cam:clip is the stepless adjustability. Easily adjust the cam:clip to your TV’s width; anywhere between 1.2 and 4.3 inches. Additionally the snakebyte cam:clip comes with two tensioning arms in different sizes for the perfect fit for almost any LCD/LED or plasma TV.
If you don’t want to mount your Kinect™ camera to your TV, the snakebyte cam:clip offers an additional option to perfectly and safely mount it. With the included wall-mount the Kinect™ camera can be mounted on your wall, independently from you TV.
Not only does the snakebyte cam:clip ensure that your Kinect™ camera is well stabilized and in a safer place than underneath the TV or in a shelf, it also optimizes the precision in detecting the player’s movements. Since the camera’s position in regards to the player is improved, the camera is able to capture player’s movements much better and can react more precisely to input.
“Important for a perfect collaboration of clip and TV: adjust the range properly. With a range from anywhere between 1.18 and 4.33 inches this poses no issue for most flat screen TV’s.”
“There is hardly anything to complain about: Due to great workmanship the clip’s fit is as tight as a thumbscrew. And you won’t have to worry about your motion sensor taking a sudden plunge to the floor.”
Conclusion: “For the record: Reliable clamp that connects your Kinect with your TV!”

“What to do with all those devices? The cameras and the sensor bars are taking up space that is not always plentiful. But when it comes to the Kinect, snakebyte developed a simple as well as ingenious solution: Mount it on top of your TV!”
“The Kinect camera now lives on top of my TV and the space in front of my TV is once again open. If you are facing the same problem, go and get the cam:clip. It’s so worth it!”
