No More Wires!
Bluetooth? What’s a bluetooth? Yes, we know it’s open wireless technology that shares data using short-wavelength radio transmissions, but what we didn’t know was why it came to be called ‘Bluetooth’ (which frankly sounds a little bit more like the name of a band playing on campus)!
So, why is it called ‘Bluetooth’? – The idea was inspired by 10th century King Harald Bluetooth. He united Danish tribes into one kingdom; Bluetooth technology unites communication into one universal standard.
And, why exactly was King Harald called ‘Bluetooth’? – Rumor has it, he may have had a bad tooth that appeared ‘blue’ – Ouch! (blue actually meant dark back then!)
Bonus Fact! The Bluetooth logo contains the Nordic runes (aka letters) for the initials “HB”! Now that’s serendipitous!
