The device, created by PDP, utilizes a blindfold to block out the Kinect’s RBG and IR cameras and mounts to the top of flat screen televisions.
Currently it’s listed for pre-order on Amazon.com, where interested customers can read more about the product’s details, for just $19.99.
“It’s fast and easy to install, requiring no tools. Perfect for flat panel HD TVs. The privacy cover protects your privacy by blocking both the RGB and IR cameras,” the product’s description says.
The products appearance comes after Microsoft scrambled earlier this month to ensure consumers than the Kinect wouldn’t be used to watch gamers for potential advertising and marketing purposes.
Microsoft director of programming for Xbox Live Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb was furious over an article by Advertising Age that said vice president of marketing and strategy Yusuf Mehdi gave a lecture at an advertising and marketing conference saying that the Kinect could be used to gage Xbox One user reactions for marketing research data.
Microsoft made assurances of Xbox One user privacy after the company called for a correction to the article.
