This Analog Joystick is the easiest way to add a joystick to your electronics projects. With 2 potentiometers (variable resistors) you can easily detect the position of the joystick at any time. Each potentiometer gives you a resistance that increases/decreases as you move the joystick. One detects up/down movements and the other detects left/right. In addition, there is a button to detect presses on the joystick, "clicks".

This 2-axis joystick, just like the ones you find in your PS2 controller, is the easiest joystick to use and great for robotics projects, interactive electronics projects, remote control projects, and any other time you feel the need to control something using a joystick.
