Using the popular Bluetooth Bee, Legwinskij has demonstrated a method of uploading Arduino sketches wirelessly using a Bluetooth-enabled PC. Although the process is not entirely automated at this stage, it will be a project worth monitoring - as once the process is completed it will make updating the software on embedded Arduino systems much easier. The following is a short demonstration of the current process:

The Bluetooth Bees are a convenient method of connecting your projects with Bluetooth, and also fit in any socket designed for an XBee. Once paired with another Bluetooth device such as an Android phone or tablet, it is easy to monitor data from the serial output via terminal emulation software on the device.
