Send and Recieve data from the TI-89 wirelessly... possible?

hi there,
lets say i have 2 ti89 calcs (they have usb connection)
is there anyway, i mean ANY WAY someone could use a wireless usb adapter and some c programming/compiling that will work with the calculator to send and recieve data (the answers obviously). could anyone give me some kind of a general pictue of how this could be done? If this can be done it's about to become my lifetime project. anyway thanks a lot for your opinions.

If you want to use it to cheat at school I have to dissapoint you; you need a computer to be able to send and receive data. This computer will act as an intermediary between the calcs; send data to the computer and let the computer send it to the other calculator.
If a near-by PC is not the problem, I don't see why it should not be possible.
You only have to read data from the USB port in your program and figure out how the answer is written in that data. Then you can send it to the other calculator.
This site may be usefull for USB communication routines:
