Inside the box, so shiny:

Opening the bag, you get the tray and some desiccant material:

Is the ATmega328PB really necessary? Could you have used something smaller like a ATtiny85?  I am trying to do something similar to what you are doing by customizing the I2C address.  I have read a few posts where people have suggested using a PIC or ATtiny85 to translate the I2C address.  I am just wondering why you needed the ATmega328PB.
