I believe www.flexipanel.com (http://www.flexipanel.com) has a wireless Bluetooth programmer for the BASIC Stamp.

@Tomvn - The short answer is no. Flexipanel used to have a Bluetooth interface sold by Parallax that could be used to program a BS2, but they no longer make it. They used to have a version of the firmware that you could download from their website and program into one of their Bluetooth interfaces, but I think that's not even available any more. The problem is that the BASIC Stamp download protocol is very timing sensitive and wireless links are generally either unreliable or buffered and the buffering delays cause the bootloader to time out.
