Joystick Wireling


Whisker Kickstarter Item

Note: This item is currently only available on Kickstarter, it will be for sale on our site after the Kickstarter is complete and rewards have been fulfilled


This Wireling lets you use a discrete joystick for inputs to your TinyDuino! This Up, Down, Left, Right joystick board interfaces with an I2C I/O expander to be read by the TinyDuino (or other TinyCircuits processor of choice). 

*Please note that this is not a full range joystick. It is essentially 4 buttons mounted sideways at the base of the joystick knob.
