Thought I'd start a new post (don't want to keep hijacking Kevin's)

The kit will comprise of 4 x plug halves (with the pins labelled) and wiring instructions to complete the cable (only basic soldering skill required).

I built one today, and the rough cost of parts was -

Cable (1M) - £1.89
USB pins (0.19 x 4) - £0.76
PCB's (4) - £0.40
3D printed cases (4) - £0.40

£3.45

Once I've tested the cable (need to send it to someone with 2 consoles) I will start selling the plugs (very cheaply).

Oh wow this looks great! I need to finally learn how to do some basic soldering so I can be prepared for this.
