ThumBoard v1

A dual joystick board.

Similar projects worth following
The ThumBoard is a dual joystick board that i made for the arduino. Who knows sometimes you need dual joysticks.

Small compact dual joystick for arnduino or any other platform you might use. It requires pull-up resistor on input pins. A way i got arround this was by using the Arduino INPUT_PULLUP feature.

The Code to run this board in Arduino.
