We can print a kinect mount, either use a pre-existing design, or modify one depending on where we want to mount it to.

Four mics pinpoint where voices or sounds are coming from while filtering out background noise.
Projects a pattern of infrared light into a room. As the light hits a surface, the pattern becomes distorted, and the distortion is read by the depth camera. Analyzes IR patterns to build a 3-D map of the room and all objects and people within it. Automatically adjusts based on the object in front of it. If you’re tall, it tilts the box up. If you’re short, it knows to angle down. Transmits data to the Xbox via an unencrypted feed, which makes it relatively easy to use the Kinect with other devices. Like a webcam, this captures a video image. The Kinect uses that information to get details about objects and people in the room.
