#9 Bluetooth



Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security. Created by telecoms vendor Ericsson in 1994.



 The word "Bluetooth" is an English version of the Scandinavian Blåtand or Blåtann, the epithet of the tenth-century king Harald I of Denmark. The name was proposed by Jim Kardach who developed a system for allowing mobile phones to communicate with computers and he picked up the term while reading Frans Gunnar Bengtsson's historical novel The Long Ships about Vikings and king Harald Bluetooth.



Recent improvements, such as a low-power version Bluetooth 4.0,  that can works with heart monitors and gives out better audio quality gives it a lot of leverage in current times. And there's a new breakthrough, Bluetooth might even move into the financial sector and now there’s a credit card reader that connects to your Smartphone over Bluetooth.
