    Are there any smaller options at this point that can hook into your plugin? Trying to find something smaller that can be a little more hidden when around the house. I use two kinects, and they work fine for where they are (my office and the living room), but places like bathrooms or even my bedroom, it's hard to get a kinect setup where it wouldn't look out of place. Ideally, I could have a Pi and a mic of some sort hook into your plugin, and it would make everything just perfect.

    Depends on the rooms layout btw. Not sure how to "link" kinects, but i assume it would work the same way but running the 2 kinects through 2 usb controllers on one PC? and one instance for the plugin on those 2? Just making assumptions atm.

    I mounted mine in the roof above the sofa where we sit because of that

    USB extension cable can work too, but you need to be careful on what cable you buy, some don't work.
    Yeah i think its over 10m you need a active usb cable with its own power supply, at that point im pretty sure the data dont degrade over range.

    Wonder if the compute stick would work if its just attached to a HDMI switch and powersupply since they are quite affordable.

    Thinking something along these lines:

    From what i can find people seem to use cheap win 8 - 10 tablets.
    Is the info then sent remotely or how does that bit work?

    One alternative would be those "TV" boxes, think some of those run windows as well.
