Legend has it that Harald Blaatand ("Bluetooth") Gormsen was the Danish king who united parts of Denmark and Norway and, eventually, other parts of Scandinavia, and who may have also introduced Christianity into Denmark. Thus, when Jim Karbach, an engineer at Intel® in the late 90s, decided to name the wireless standard for uniting personal use devices he chose Bluetooth. There are obviously a whole array of devices that we use in our day-to-day lives that utilize Bluetooth, ranging from our PCs and smartphones to items like smartwatches and fitbits. To design these devices, a sampling of Bluetooth components and development tools currently available is listed here.
