Will Kinect work through a table?

So if it uses IR sensing, then it should feasibly be able to detect you through a coffee table assuming it's not made of lead or has a fire pit in it.
Now I'm not saying that I want to sit on my couch and play, but I do have a big coffee table between my couch and TV that I can't exactly move every time I want to play kickball.

that really depends on what frequency IR it uses

I doubt the camera would be sensitive enough

come to think of it, the IR sensor is designed to detect your body so it would be pretty stupid to make it able to penetrate objects
