This looks interesting. MIDI over Bluetooth from the makers of Xkey Air.

WIDI Master: The wireless MIDI over Bluetooth adapter.
With WIDI Master you can connect all your MIDI devices without wires. No matter if they are master or slave. For instance, you can connect two standalone MIDI hardware devices. Furthermore, you can pair your Bluetooth MIDI controller with any standalone MIDI hardware device. Also, you can pair your standalone MIDI hardware (switch to slave mode) with any iOS device or Mac. In addition, for Windows and Android users, you can use our WIDI BUD to fully enjoy these benefits.

Just received this in the post today. Connected it to my old Yamaha V50 synth and was able to wirelessly control Reason 11 on my iMac using Bluetooth MIDI. Latency was excellent and it was very cool! I am trying to find out why no velocity, pitchbend or modwheel info was transmitted, but will test on my Ensoniq ASR-10 tomorrow. Anyway, worth a look!

Yes, I have seen that one. Difference with this new one is that you don't necessarily need a computer or other intermediate device. You can have 2 hard ware synths connected wirelessly through just the WIDI Master(s). I think that is a first for this technology.
