xbee shield

hi guys just wanted to know when using the xbee shield, do you have to have the xbee module as well and is it easy to configure the system, thanks

That depends on what you want to use it for. Wall art does not require that there be an XBee in place. Though it's pretty plain without it.

If you want to attach the shield to the Arduino, and have it actually do something, the "something" is actually done by the XBee, so, yes, you need an XBee.

And, to anticipate the next question, yes, you do need two of them. One XBee is about as useful as one shoe.

and is it easy to configure the system

Certainly is. If you know what you are doing.
