Xbox Kinect Size / Dimensions
Ever wondered how big Xbox Kinect is? Microsoft is not specifying the dimensions of their Xbox Kinect sensor anywhere, so it's up to us to get the info ourselves. We get some requests of people wanting to know the size of the sensor here at 123Kinect.com. And, as we aim to gather everything on Kinect, here we go... let's base it on the dimensions of the Xbox 360 controller which dimensions are outlined below.

Now, let's look at the following image from Gizmodo (thanks guys!) and do the math:

As you can see, the controller is very close to the Kinect Sensor. Now let's do a bit of boundary checking: the depth of Kinect is about 50-60% the Xbox 360 Controller's depth (from front to back). Also, the Kinect Sensor is about 1.5-2 times as wide as the Xb0x 360 controller.
Dimensions Estimate
Meaning, these are the right estimations for the dimensions in inches and centimeters of the Xbox Kinect sensor:


~9.1" (23.1 cm)
~12.1" (30.7 cm)

depth (front to back)
~2.1" (5.3 cm)
~2.5" (6.4  cm)

update: The final Kinect dimensions ones are below.
Kinect Sensor Dimensions
Fervor reported the final Kinect dimensions in our Kinect forum:
The Kinect head (the rectangular part) is 11" x 2.5" x 1.5" (w x d x h). The base is 3" x 3" x 1.5" (w x d x h). The cable sticks out the back of the base, so you need more than 3 inches of room. So total height is around 3 inches...will need a little more room because the head tilts on its own and might need space.
So now that we've got that covered. Did this help you check your setup at home? Where are you going to mount Kinect or do you need accessories for that?

If you want to know more about the room size required for Kinect then please see this post.
