The Nordic NRF24L01+ 2.4Ghz radio board is a great little radio to use for all your projects.  No, it is not wifi compatable. It uses it's own protocal but it is very easy it integrate into an Arduino project, is low power, and is very small.  Don't let the size fool you though, it can transmit over some impressive distances.
