Found on Hack-A-Day, from the Magic Smoke blog page.
 
I like this idea.  These RF modules are about a buck a piece and use an SPI interface.  This should be easily adaptable to a PIC processor and Swordfish Basic.


 
 
This compact PCB interfaces a low power MSP430G2553 microcontroller with a Nordic NRF24L01+ 2.4 GHz radio frequency transceiver module. It's well adapted to serve as a wireless sensor node, but has enough I/O options to be put to use wherever a small microcontroller is required. Available soon from Tindie!

Here's the first eBay listing I came across for the transceiver modules.

The NRF24L01 modules seem to be getting very popular, I've had a few of them kicking around for awhile and are on my list todo!. Would be nice if Swordfish had a NRF24L01 module

Using these modules looks pretty simple. DIY embedded has a series of tutorials on using them. To my cold-addled brain, they look pretty clear and well-written.

Could be a nice add to my break beam photo trigger..... A wireles sensor will be less intrusive. Should check latency, but seems doable. But then, I must upgrade from 12F to 16F (Or 18F)
