Using two xbees, an arduino, an xbee explorer, and an h-bridge, wirelessly control a DC motor to spin in both directions (last video).

Note: I used the xbee I linked to, but for a one to one communication, rather than a network of wireless devices, xbee series 1 would do fine, but the AT commands are slightly different.

This instructables was made at TechShop! www.techshop.ws

You can also control servo motors, or make a moving wireless security camera, as seen below.

In the photos I'm actually using an seeeduino but it is very similar to Arduino
