    This TinyShield lets you add some control to your TinyDuino projects, like remote controlling a robot or playing a video game with your TinyScreen. This TinyShield has two analog joysticks on both sides, plus two push buttons along the top, to create a tiny joystick controller for your TinyDuino. This TinyShield uses the I2C bus for communication and can safely run over the full TinyDuino voltage range.

    Note: This joystick works with the standard TinyScreen, however not with the TinyScreen+
