I boueght a kinect device and I want to use it on my PC as a sensor. I understand this is possible because there are drivers for kinect. However, I don't understand the kinect cable. Its not usb, its not firewire. It is some kind of a rectangle with a corner notched off. I can't identify what type of cable. Mind you I don';t own an xbox.
Do I have to tear it apart to connect it to the PC? Or is there USB-Kinect adaptor I can buy to accomplish this? Or perhaps did I buy the wrong kinect device? is there a version that hooks to USB?
Any advice for a first time kinect programmer?
