Using Light Blue app to simulate a BLE device
In the late 90s, Intel, Nokia and Ericson was working on different implementations for short-range wireless technology. They gathered to put a stranded tech for everyone.
Meanwhile, an engineer at Intel named Jim Kardach was reading about the vikings and he admired king Harald Bluetooth for unifying all the danish tribes, or all Scandinavia “which he didn’t really”
And so they named the new tech after the viking king.
