I²C Controlled + Keypad Shield Kit for 16x2 LCD

I²C Controlled + Keypad Shield Kit for 16x2 LCD

Adafruit Industries LLC

This shield makes it easy to use a 16x2 Character LCD. These LCDs do require quite a few digital pins, 6 to control the LCD and then perhaps another 3 to control the RGB backlight for a total of 9 pins. It is easier for people to get these LCDs into their projects so a shield that lets you control a 16x2 Character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins and 5 keypad pins using only the two I²C pins on the Arduino. The best part is you don't really lose those two pins either, since you can stick I²C-based sensors, RTCs, etc and have them share the I²C bus. This is a way to add a display without all the wiring hassle.
