Xbox Kinect to ghost hunt ? Ghost adventures did !

It`s been awhile since I`ve been around, and I`m hoping everyone is doing well
I got a question for you, I was told in passing by my friends sister, that on an episode of one of my favorite shows ( Ghost adventures ), they used an Xbox Kinect to capture a spirit on screen.
I was curious if it`s possible, seeing as how the only time I`ve ever used one, was for video games, and it didn`t catch me all that well. I am assuming though, since I havn`t watched the episode yet, thatthey attached it to a laptop or computer and not the Xbox itself lol.
The episode in question through my googling the subject is titled * Cripple Creek*
I hope to hear your thoughts and ideas...on whether it would work or not... and if you had personal stories to share on the subject as well
Thanks for the read
PS. wasn`t sure if it should be posted here or not, but given it`s something that happened on the show... I thought I was in the right place to put it .

I am moving this to the Equipment board, as this is more about using an Xbox as equipment than it is about discussing a show. It'll get more attention in Equipment.

But for serious investigations one must use a device intended for the use it was designed for. It's like using a cell phone camera / recorder. It might work, sometimes, but the odds of getting a false positive far out weigh the odds of getting valid data. So if you want a camera, use a good camera. If you want to record EVP, use a good audio recorder. And leave the Kinect / X Box home to play games on it. You will get less data that way, but what you do get stands a much better chance of being something worth looking at.

Caverat, I never thought of it that way, that is a pretty good view on the whole thing.
Hope you all are doing well.
