Leonard Pirate at Make Tokyo Meeting 07

Posted on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011 in conferences, Maker Faire by Ian

Yoshi Tsuboi’s Leonard Pirate is an AVR-based multi-protocol interface like the Bus Pirate. It uses an Atmega 32U4 with integrated USB. We recommended he check out the great work already done on the Bus Ninja project too. Pirates vs ninjas, get it?

He also showed us an AVR MKII programmer clone he’s been working on, called the FRISK USBTiny MkII. He also did a Japanese translation of the “Soldering is Easy” comic book.

Thanks for talking to us Yoshi, it was great to meet you!
