Xbee Modules

Adds wireless communication between e.g your sensor or led output and arduino to the computer. Download or send data from / to arduino – so the computer can be somewhere else displaying graphics, playing sounds etc. It might be tricky to get them run, but these have been used on at least three occasions (3 different projects and people) in the lab so they do work. I’ll try to post more info how to set them up. Update: there is a tutorial now!

There are differences between xBee 1 and 2, and I think the lab has both.
