    Anyone see this pattern in their sandbox?

    The sand has been smoothed. Any idea what is causing this?

    This is a side effect of how the Kinect works. It’s a combination of flaws in the diffraction grating that creates the infrared speckle pattern, and the limited resolution of the infrared camera. They all have this, but the number and strength of the vertical stripes differs. This here is a particularly obvious case.

    Yep. There are times I start it up and there is only one line. Other times 3. Yesterday I got this. Frustrating.

    is there any way to lessen these effects? will internal calibration make a difference?

    Pardon reviving an old thread…
    As Dr. Kreylos mentioned, this is a hardware nuance of the Kinect, but would like to encore the last question in this posting;
    Is this something that can be mitigated through software easily?
