    This TinyShield lets you add some control to your TinyDuino projects! Control your very own robot or play a video game with your TinyScreen. This TinyShield has two analog joysticks on both sides as well as two push buttons along the top to create a tiny controller for your TinyDuino. This TinyShield uses the I2C bus for communication and can safely run over the full TinyDuino voltage range.
