The kinect plug looks close to USB but it's not quite the same. How do I get this to plug into my rpi? Do I need to cut the plug type and attach a regular usb plug instead?

I've looked for a walkthrough regarding this but I haven't been about to find one that covers the physical connection. Please let me know if you know of a good walk through.


In addition to the link listed in the comments above, which will help you convert the plug to a proper USB plug, you'll also need drivers for the Kinect sensor.

Check out this project for a small embedded driver: https://github.com/xxorde/librekinect
