    Hello everyone. This is my first post on the forums.

    I've done a little electronic fiddling with sensors (photodiode and a light intensity to frequency converter) before.

    My newest idea/project involves coupling a temperature sensor to a Bluetooth and/or ZigBee transceiver. I have found a nice ZigBee transceiver and development kit (it's must easier to search for those as the Internet isn't flooded with ZigBee headsets). ZigBee item can be found here.

    However, it's hard for me to find a Bluetooth kit. I basically want a battery powered Bluetooth radio I can set outside and read the temperature on my computer every X number of minutes. I also have a temperature/humidity sensor I'd like to use. I am currently in possession of an Azio Bluetooth USB dongle, the only part I'm not lacking.

    Any suggestions on a simple Class 2 Bluetooth transceiver? I just need a few ADC channels and an easier-to-program microcontroller integrated.
