Easiest/cheapest solution for my Canon 6d to trigger off camera 580ex ii...

I can use the 580ex ii as master to other flashes, which I do not have, but is there anything built in to the 6d that can trigger the flash when its off camera? I've heard theres something about the WIFI and remote shooting that may allow, but nothing concrete...

If not.....the next cheapest solution is what...a remote trigger that goes into hotshoe? Or does this also need something attached to the 580ex?

The next step would obviously be....another flash ON camera to trigger the 580ex.. or vice versa, the 580 controlling a separate slave flash. I would prefer one flash off camera thats why i'm going that route first....
