nRF24L01+ Wireless Transceiver Module
A wonderful, cheap wireless module with plenty of Arduino support - the nRF24L01+ can achieve up to 100ft indoors and 300+ft outdoors (in our own testing). We sourced these from a high quality factory, as we found that many look the same but function very differently.

The i/o lines on this module are 5v tolerant so no level shifter is required to use with 5v devices, though the module itself still needs to be fed 3.3v.

A great introduction, diagrams, and links to libraries for this module
