[#KINECTSDK] You don’t have #USB3 on your laptop? A #USB3 PCMCIA card can be your friend to use #KinectV2


In other posts I mentioned how demanding is the new Kinect with respect to the graphics and USBs (here andhere). In my case in particular use a 1 SurfacePro to work with Kinect V2. Although of course, I have the following in my development laptop


And of course, give a little penalty does not use a “still good” laptop to develop only because it has no USB 3 (it is incredible, in January will be the laptop 3 years and already is viejuno!)

Talking to people who know they advised me to try a PCMCIA USB 3.0 card, that might be enough. On amazon I saw this very cheap PCMCIA card , €10.35

And of course, 2 days later he had it at home. And in a few minutes I had connected the Kinect V2. As option B, I think it is to consider, but I think that we must also see if the Board model supports a USB 3 in the PCMCIA.
