Build yourself a wirelessly controlled, Arduino-powered message board!
Here’s an easy project which creates a wirelessly programmable message board. It uses XBee modules to provide a wireless serial link between your computer and the device. You interact with it via a simple menu system. There are no buttons (other than the reset button, which is hidden) on the device.

This article shows how to achieve wireless communication using XBee radios. The XBee radio is soldered on breakout board to be placed on breadboard. Two breadboards with a PIC on each is used and XBees are powered from 3,3V regulators. Source code is included on the link below.

mBeduino is an mBed board that can be connected with Arduino Shields. mBeduino board contains: USB-A, LAN RJ-45, SD or microSD, CAN driver MCP2551, XBee or XBee PRO, Arduino Shield socket, I2C EEPROM socket, RTC backup capacitor and DC input (6～12V). It comes from Japan and joins the worlds of mbed and Arduino.

This project is a wireless temperature and humidity sensor based on Sensirion SHT15 sensor and PIC18F1220. The unit is wirelessly sends the readings to a base station to display and log the data. The wireless link is implemented using XBee RF modules.

This project is a garage status monitor that is able to tell when the garage door is open or closed and also monitor the ambient temperature. It is based on an Arduino board, a XBee module and a LM36 sensor. The garage door status is sensed by a roller contact switch, data is handled by a Windows Service and displayed over the web. [via]

User Alexdlp @ instructables.com build a wireless 2×16 character display on Altoids box. To achieve wireless connectivity he used an Xbee module and a suitable antenna. Check construction details on the link below. There are two unit one connected to PC and a remote one.

If you have an Arduino project where the dev board is stuck inside a machine, or attached to the rafters or is inaccessible in some other way, a wireless programming/debugging link will save you tons of time. This tutorial is an extension on Rob’s version. In this version, no extra firmware or hardware (other than a capacitor) is necessary. Just use the default bootloader. I demonstrate it with a ‘classic’ Arduino but of course this can be easily adapted to any version or clone.
