Do the sensors have to be plugged into the PC the rift is plugged into?

Level 2
I just ordered the Oculus Rift with 3 sensors and I was wondering if I can plug the sensors into a USB wall outlet. Or do the sensors need to be plugged into the PC my Rift is installed on?

Level 9
They need to be plugged in to the PC, they do send data back, its not just power.
