Need Included in box hardware / cords information for Kinect for Windows. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Gang,

    I've purchased the Kinect for Windows hardware but I am unsure if there are any extra hardware (any cordage or cables) that are required to be purchased separately.

    Anyone have a link to the "Contents of package" or "Included in this box" information for the new kinect for windows.

    Thanks in advance.

    According to Amazon.com's listing;

    What’s in the Box

    • Kinect for Windows sensor
    • USB/power supply cable
    • Manual

    What comes in the box

    • Kinect for Windows sensor
    • USB/power supply cable
    • Manual

    As far as any additional hardware, I don't believe you'd need anything other than a computer meeting the recommended specifications. Noting that the kinect for windows does NOT come with any software so you'd have to download the SDK separately here; http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/develop/overview.aspx

    Unlike the xbox 360 kinect, the kinect for windows is designed especially for PC, so you won't find any odd xbox 360 slim connectors like you would on the xbox 360 kinect :) (those required a special connector to connect to the old xbox 360s and PCs, but you don't need to worry about that with the kinect for windows)

  • The packaging should have the Kinect hardware, power cable/plug, and the dongle.
