Recently I was able to get my hands on one of the new Xbox 360 Kinect. For those who don’t know the Xbox Kinect is Microsoft’s rejoinder to the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation PS3 Move. The Xbox Kinect comes out of the box with a 10 foot cable. I greatly recommend this item.
The Cable Extension for the Xbox 360 Kinect will allow you to extend your connection by 10 feet, allowing you to place your Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor virtually anywhere in your living space. The Cable Extension for Xbox 360 Kinect is great for all but will best appeal to consumers with large living spaces and entertainment centers.
The officially licensed Kinect Extension Cable allows for expanded placement of the Kinect camera in a variety of settings. The big difference is that the Xbox 360 Kinect cable is designed to plug into the special port on the back of the Xbox 360 slim and provide additional power. It will come with a USB converter cable that turns the special Kinect cable into a USB connection when you buy the Xbox 360 Kinect on its own. So I started trying out a few different extension cables that I had ready to me.
