I finally got around tonight to putting a cable together for the Xbox 360 Kinect that I bought a few months back. I opted to build my own rather than ordering one from Microsoft (I had bought the 360 S with Kinect bundle and this version does not come with the power supply cable).
This is the pinout for the connector (source). I used a cheap Kinect extension cable that I picked up for $5 and spliced that onto a USB cable and a 1.5Amp 12V regulated power supply.
Once together I installed the drivers and compiled the demo from the openkinect.org getting started page.
Working well. Now I can start some Kinect hacking :)
