Dolabra connected his Bus Pirate to the Nexus 7 tablet. All it takes is an OTG USB cable and a serial app to get your Bus Pirate going.

I have been playing around with USB OTG on my new nexus 7 tablet. I wanted to see if I could talk to a bus pirate. It turns out you can!

Get an assembled Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors.

    Now the only question is when we are going to develop an app for the BusPirate?

    Nexus devices rock! Go Dolabra! :-)

    I’m still waiting for the IOIO V2 Devices to be available from SparkFun…

    I recent read this http://www.suntimes.com/technology/ihnatko/13801436-452/nexus-7-a-good-rival-for-the-ipad-in-a-compact-size.html and he notes that some Bluetooth keyboards and mice work great with the Nexus 7. Also with the above mentioned USB OTG cable, and a hub you can use most any keyboard and mouse. But an app would still be nice in case I ever get a Nexus 7. ;)

    Tried it on a Samsung Galaxy Note. Works! Very cool.

    Is it posible to fix a completely broken boot-loader on the Nexus 7 by connected it to the bus pirate at copying the boot-loader back to the N7?
