  • Connect Kinect to what?

    I have read several topics and I just can't seem find an answer to a question that I hope is not just obvious to everyone but me.

    In the Kinect (3P) user guide, it says you can use a Kinect from Xbox 360 - which I have. But what do I connect that to? The plug is proprietary and only fits in the back of an xbox. How do I connect it to a PC?

    You can buy a USB adapter. Check on Amazon.

        Here today use Spud's Alexa and Alexa plug-in with a 17" multi touch (USB) monitor (HDMI) running on a micro PC / Windows 10 computer. Works well.

        Footprint with the Kinect / 17" monitor is a bit larger than the Amazon Echo.

        As mentioned you need a combination power supply and USB cable(s) device.

        Here using the laptop style power supply stuff for my 360's.

            The microPC is a PipoX7 which you can just velcro to the back of the monitor.
