I bought a Kinect last week as my Christmas gift, the installation is straightforward, total installation time is under 10 minute, however it does not come with any mounting device. It's ok, I put it in front of my TV, just underneath the screen.
The bad thing came out when I try to switch the TV channel, the Kinect blocked the TV's IR receiver, I couldn't switch my TV with the remote controller. Should I buy the $39.99 official Xbox 360 Kinect TV Mount Kit? It's enough to get another Kinect game for that price!
After a brief consideration, I'd choose to save the money for another game title.
Step 1: Materials
All we need to build the Kinect mount is simple.
1. Book stand
2. Velcro pad with adhesive back
We will use a tall book stand as the Kinect mount body. When you select the stand at stores, please try to find one which is light in weight and easy to bend.
I chosed the one with punched holes on it that further reduce its weight, plus it will not fully blocks the TV's ventilation holes.
