There are heaps of good instructables about hacking an Xbox Kinect. From 3D scanning to motion sensing, there's a tonne of cool stuff you can do with a Kinect, but so far there are no instructables on how to wire the Kinect for USB.
I don't know what is supposed to come in the bundle, but I bought a Kinect second hand, and got only the device. No adapters, cables or anything. So this is a quick instructable on how to cut of the original plug and wire a USB on, to use with a computer.
Step 1: You Will Need:
- An Xbox Kinect.
- A 12v 2A power supply. I used an old netbook power supply
- A USB cable
- Soldering iron + solder
- Heat shrink
