What kind of camera are you using?
The answer is always yes if it is never no.

Ah. Well, you need to make the camera send data directly through the bluetooth. You will have to decode the data on the other end, though.

Oh thanks, man, this will be hard.. One more thing, I'm also thinking to put a robotic arm or something like this.., do you prefer just one robotic arm pretty good, or two little ''hands'' ( like humans)? =/

You might want to just start out with one, and then expand into a second later after you figure out how to do it. No use in frying two, right?
BTW, you might want some extra confirmation on my idea... Not sure if it'll work or not, but that's my best guess... -_-'

HAHA, ok. thank you again, I was afraid that I build one arm and later needs to change all the project just to put other arm,
sorry, but I need to ask other question. Do you think that I can send datas to my robot through Bluetooth, using the bluesmirf (datas for control of the robot) or do you have a better idea of bluetooth device?, Can I control it from a mobile phone?  That's my last question, =)

You don't want to send video through bluetooth . . . bluetooth baud is incredibly slow for video . . .

What you want is a wireless spy cam kit (google it). The crappy ultra cheap kinds will be under $100 for everything you need.

Ok. but, do you think that I can control my robot through wireless or bluetooth?, I'll control a robotic arm with servos, using SSC-32 with a bluesmirf, but I don't know if I have to control the robot movements for locomotion through bluetooth or wireless. ( the locomotion motors aren't servos, it's common 6v motors )

THANKS  ;D

You can connect a ESC (electronic speed control), that takes in the servo signal from the SSC32 and drives  a motor accordingly.

but if I connect a standard motor in a ESC - ssc-32, he will be able to interpret it without being a servo?

You'll be able to control it just like a modified servo.
