Klaatu talks about the HC-05 and -06 series of bluetooth modules and how to use them with an Arduino, including some basic code on the Arduino to get it to respond to signals over bluetooth, and some basic PyQt code on how to send signals to the bluetooth device. PLUS, he talks about configuring the bluetooth so that it is connected to the serial port of your system (so that Python can use it).
A super basic bluetooth controller app can be found here:

Great show Klaatu. Really enjoy anything about Arduino and general fiddling about with electronics.
Currently mucking about with RF transmitter and receiver modules and have considered using XBee. So this show was of interest.
