For phone users in general and especially smartphones, Bluetooth technology is not too strange. From the time users ‘shoot bluetooth’ to each other, photos and music so far when using accessories such as headsets, microphones, etc. connected wirelessly to computers and phones. However, not all users know the origin of this strange name ‘bluetooth’ (blue tooth).
Bluetooth – A great connection and communication technology
Bluetooth is a standard for wireless communications technology that connects close to electronic devices. This connection technology uses UHF radio waves with frequency band of 2.4 GHz. The purpose of Bluetooth is to simplify the electronic device connection by eliminating the wire link and replacing with the scalar wireless connection.
Today, Bluetooth technology has greatly supported data transmission, especially at short and fixed distances. Bluetooth also creates wireless personal networks (Wireless Personal Area Network-PANs). Bluetooth achieved up to 1Mb / s.
Origin of the name Bluetooth
Despite such cult, but few people know that the Bluetooth name is inspired directly from the nickname of a Danish king. This king is named Harald (the fuller name in Danish is Harald Gormsson Blatand and English is Harald Bluetooth). But why does Harald have the nickname ‘blue tooth’?
The answer lies in his eating habits quite … lovely. Legend has it that King Harald was extremely fond of blueberries. Because he liked this fruit, King Harald had no reason not to eat continuously for pleasure. So the king ate blueberries constantly, so much so that his teeth began to turn blue – almost like the blueberries.
Why the king Harald of Denmark? Because the creators wanted to remind the spirit of King Harald. He is considered to be an outstanding king living in the 10th century, having great merit in resolving conflicts. Thanks to Harald, the conflicts between the three nations of Scandinavia, corresponding to today’s Denmark, Norway and Sweden, were eliminated, creating unity. Similarly, the developer’s idea for Bluetooth is also to create telecommunications connections, computers and ‘merge’ electronic devices.
The meaning of the logo of Bluetooth is full of creativity and humor
Bluetooth technology was born and is named based on the inspiration of King Harald Blatand (Blue Tooth Harald), so the logo of the technology must also refer to this Danish king. Specifically, the angular white symbol placed in the middle of the logo is a combination of the letters H (i.e., Harald – the name of the king) and B (ie Blatand – the nickname of the king), they are all written in the alphabet. argue the ancient runes of northern Europe.
To this day, Bluetooth is still a useful technology, important for many smartphone users with advantages almost unrivaled.
