Wifi Robot controlled by Arduino Esplora

Hi to everyone, i'm a newbie in arduino, anyway i'm trying to assemble a Rover Robot, controlled by an arduino esplora via WiFi. I'd like to use the Arduino esplora as a Joystick. I think i have to connect the arduino esplora to a WiFi shield. Is it possible? Any suggest?



The only thing that I can offer is that I am trying to do the same thing...


Do you need WiFi? It's certainly possible, but Bluetooth is often used for short range serial comms and seems to offer a much simpler solution.

How would one start to go about doing the project then? Any suggestions on a parts list?
