While we build, configure and test each Mobile Kinect Tablet to order, the despatch is typically 2 working days from receipt of payment. . Our design continues to improve based on feedback from our customers, so the setup received may have slight variations in appearance. In all cases functionality and performance remains the same, or better.
Here is a demo of our SLS Portable Kinect Camera + Tablet in action. The stickman appears over the person to the left of the frame and a second stickman appears that is sat at the Piano. We thank Spookspys for trialling our tablet out in the field and providing this footage for us to use on our website…….

How to assemble / disassemble your Kinect Camera Setup
What else is Included? ………
Modified Kinect Sensor – This makes the sensor portable, it runs off a battery pack and has been adapted to connect to a tablet. The sensors we use are refurbished XBOX stock.
Windows Tablet – To ensure you get the best experience from the Mobile Kinect Tablet, we have gone to great lengths to find a tablet that is capable of driving the sensor and software seamlessly. Our refurbished tablets carry a 60 DAY WARRANTY and have the relevant software pre-installed and setup the device. A charging lead will be provided with the tablet.
Trigger Grip / Stand – This can be configured to a trigger grip for portable use, or it can be reconfigured within seconds to a desktop tripod.
Battery Pack – We supply a standard 12v pack that accommodates 8 x AA batteries to powers the sensor bar. Alkaline batteries are recommended. The Sensor has been modified using a standard 12v 5.5mm / 2.1mm CCTV power socket allowing you to use other common 12v rechargeable packs if you prefer. (additional pack / AA batteries not included)
Software – Our tablets have been configured for simple use, we offer full support once you receive your device. We upload several components and place the relevant shortcuts in the Windows Start Menu for ease of use. The software allows Standard Camera Mode, Infrared Camera (enables you to capture images in the dark), Colour / Monochrome Depth Mode, Stickman mode / Skeletal Viewer (Full Body / Trunk / Facial Recognition) and much more. The software can be used to view or record. We recommend recording to an SD card rather than filling up the device memory as this leave the tablets memory clear for faster processing.
What is it for? ………
The Kinect Sensor has been taken from an XBOX gaming system. Various developers have since created programs to utilise the KINECT sensor well beyond it’s intended use such as the Skeletal Viewer.
The SLS Portable Kinect Camera projects over one million small infrared beams over a wide field of view. The sensor recognises changes in depth as and when each of the beams are broken, allowing the device to build a 3D model of its view. The software has been programmed to recognise Skeletal and Facial characteristics, which the device uses to create the ‘stickman’ when it recognises a human body or spirit.
The tablet is fully mobile and can be used to view or record various type of data relative to the software you select from the toolkit provided. Examples include;
Skeletal Recognition (Stickman Mode)
Facial Recognition / Facial Replacement
IR Nighvision Camera
Depth Camera (Colour or Monochrome to indicate Depth)
Tips for best use….
While the tablet can be used for recording data, there is limited space available after we have installed the relevant software. If the memory runs out before a recording session is closed by the user, the resulting files are often unreadable. as Such, we advise leaving the remaining memory on the tablet free for processing and recommend using a micro SD card for recording SLS data or Screen Recordings to. To do this, insert a formatted micro SD card in to the Tablet, open the software you wish to use and then set the recording destination to the SD card.
The setup carries an extended 60 day warranty and lifetime technical support.
On arrival of your Kinect, you may find the following useful to get you started….. Please note, the tablet shown in this demonstration is the Dual OS version.
