Since your BOE Shield-Bot already has IR receivers, how about using an infrared TV remote to drive it around? This project provides the instructions and Arduino code.
Pairing a Memsic 2-axis accelerometer with XBee RF modules makes a powerful and fun wireless tilt controller for your robot. One XBee module and a Memsic Dual-Axis Accelerometer are mouted on a BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board. The other XBee module mounts on a BASIC Stamp controlled robot. SumoBot wrestling is a perfect application for this!
Spread a little holiday cheer!
