Hi folks, we have a pretty cool project in mind for the office which would use a XBox Kinect via a PC.. the latest model Xbox Kinect bundle I've bought sadly didn't come with a standard USB connector which would allow me to plug into the PC out of the box.

I understand there is a power supply + standard USB cable set available for connecting to older model XBox's. But my google-foo is failing me and I can't seem to track it down anywhere.

Does anyone know where to source these from?

aliexpress has some listed, and ebay as well. They dont have any with a AS/NZS plug tho, so you may run into problems if you need to get them tagged to use in an office.
