Help Interfacing ps3 controller with arduino wirelessly without computer. Answered

I want to purchase the dfrobotshop rover found here:(http://www.robotshop.com/dfrobotshop-rover-tracked-robot-basic-kit-17.html).Although it is no fun without the goodies,which poses the challenge of controlling it with a ps3 controller wirelessly without a computer. If someone could tell me what hardware to use and get me receiving data from the controller via bluetooth in the serial monitor  
It  would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance,bye!

Your best bet would be a Bluetooth dongle and a Raspberry Pi.
