Setting up your Xbox One Kinect

Unlike with the Xbox 360 Kinect, the Kinect One drivers are readily available from Windows Update. Please use the Windows Update driver instead of the older manually installed SDK.

You can see instructions on doing that on this page.


The Kinect One has a very high vertical field of view. This means you can be more lenient in where you place it. We recommend having it at around chest height facing perfectly straight.

In general avoid pointing it down at the floor. The infrared bouncing back is what causes your feet to become mostly invisible and breaks foot rotation.


Once you’ve done this, put on your VR headset and get the trackers calibrated.
