Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices, and building personal area networks (PANs).
Bluetooth is the name given to wireless communication technology that allows the transmission of data and files quickly and securely through various types of devices. But have you ever stopped to think why Bluetooth technology got its name?
We have to go to the past to know the real reason behind the famous name Bluetooth. In the year 1994, Engineers of a Swedish Company named Ericsson invented a wireless technology that helps to communicate among different devices. Engineers recalled the legend of Danish Viking King Harald Blatand.
Harald Blatand or you can say Harold Bluetooth in English. The name he got because of his fondness towards blueberries which stained his teeth. King Blåtand is always known for uniting the nations he has an ability to bring people together in non-violent negotiations.
As King Blåtand is known for uniting the nations, similarly, Bluetooth was created to allow connectivity and collaboration between different devices. In order to pay tribute to King Blåtand contribution, engineers have combined the initials of his name in the Bluetooth Logo.
