Xbox One controller has to be plugged in with a usb cord. You can use any usb to micro usb so a spare cell phone cable will work. An Xbox 360 controller can be wireless, but you have to have an adapter.
 


For wireless you need http://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/accessories/controllers/windows-10-wireless-adapter/ and Windows 10.
