What does Bluetooth has to do with the Vikings?

Vikings, Bluetooth

What does Bluetooth actually has to do with the Vikings? Quite a lot, actually. In the 10th century, the Viking king Harald I. Gormsson, called Blauzahn, united numerous Danish tribes. To make this happen, he built a connecting network of roads and bridges. Jim Kardach, an electrical engineer, felt inspired by this story and in the 1990s suggested naming the then new transmission technology Bluetooth. In fact, even the Bluetooth logo is formed from the initials of Harald Blauzahn.
Did you know that COREDINATE also offers Bluetooth control points? These are especially suitable if you want to install the control point behind a wall or hidden in a cabinet. The Bluetooth checkpoint Beacon Maxi has a range of about 100 meters, is powered by 2 AA 1.5 V batteries and has a battery life of up to four years. Click here to go to the store.
