 Hi, im new to the forums and just picked up arduino thanks to my friends. We are working on a project at CART, which is for juniors and seniors in high school. We are trying to program a wii remote to work with a Vex robot by using an arduino. I already know C and C++ but i was wondering if it would be possible to use a bluetooth device to transfer commands via microcontroller since Vex has its' own micro controller. Our goal is to use gyro sensors to move the robots arm up and down side to side in correspondance with our arm movements using the wii remote. If anyone possibly has any ideas that would be awesome. Thanks!

XBee is very handy, easily implemented.
