Maff^ posted some pictures of a Bus Pirate case made from a Dallas/Maxim sample box in the forum. Lots of people have a few of these little boxes, this is a great way to recycle one.

I decided to create my own housing. I had a small transparent box laying around where the BPv3 fitted in perfectly. It’s a box from Dallas Semiconductors / Maxim that contained some DS1820 samples I ordered a couple of years back. Using a Dremel (clone) I created notches for the USB connector and the pin header. A couple of days later I also added some ‘light pipes’ because those red LEDs are pretty bright, maybe even a little to bright :). I also tried out the STK500 firmware and successfully programmed an AtTiny2313.

Thanks for the tip!
