Wireless Heaven: All About Bluetooth

Bluetooth technology is part of almost all digital devices. We have now reached the tech phase where it feels like everything comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity. Bluetooth offers a wide range of functions and has become a big part of the wireless revolution. In a world full of wireless networking, you have likely come across it at some point in your life. It is very simple to connect, free to use, and easy to figure out.

What is Bluetooth Technology?

Bluetooth technology is a standardized protocol that was originally created in 1989. The technology uses short-range wireless communication to connect users to many different types of electronic devices like cell phones, speakers, personal computers, video game consoles, printers, cameras, and numerous other gadgets, which connect and share information with each other without proprietary cables.

Bluetooth allows your gadgets to communicate easily by connecting any two devices to one other wirelessly. This technology reduces the need for all those cords and adapters since your devices can sync directly with each other. Not only is Bluetooth a convenient way to wirelessly connect two devices together, you don’t even have to be in close range to use whatever device you choose.

The Beginning of Bluetooth

In 1994, Ericsson Mobile Communication proved the skill of connection and established the Bluetooth project. The name came from the story of the Danish King Harald Blåtand who was nicknamed “Bluetooth” because he loved eating blueberries, or maybe had a nibble on his enemies’ frozen flesh if you believe that crazy story! Over a thousand years ago, the king stopped the fighting between Denmark, Norway, and Sweden and brought them together, just like the Bluetooth technology connects all devices so they can work together instead of fighting each other. The Bluetooth name was supposed to be temporary, but it stuck and has become an established symbol on all of our devices. That blue and white logo is actually a bind rune combining King Bluetooth’s initials.

Simple Setup: Pairing and Bonding

Pairing and bonding your devices through a Bluetooth connection is easy and quick. Pairing is the first step that leads to bonding your gadgets together. When the devices are in range, they can discover and connect to each other, but must be paired before they can communicate. Once the device finds the discoverable one, you may be asked to enter a number as instructed by the user manual but one isn’t always required. Congratulations, your devices are now bonded.

Life is Easier With No Strings Attached

Bluetooth has become part of our everyday lives and made things easier thanks to the advantages and key features offered by Bluetooth. A big benefit of Bluetooth technology is the ability to live a stress-free life without tangled cables. Now you can get rid of the clutter that connects to your personal computer, headphones, speakers, and other gadgets, leaving you with a clear and well-maintained room free of wires lying on the floor. No more mess to look at or trip over! Finally, you no longer need to worry about what plug goes where.

Entertainment Everywhere

For a connected viewing and listening experience, you can’t go wrong with Bluetooth. These smart entertainment devices range from your home to the car and the rest is left to your imagination. All of these devices have the potential to add something exciting to your everyday life. For example, imagine doing your chores and not completely hating it thanks to your Bluetooth ‘buds rocking your favorite music, or hosting a Bluetooth ghetto-blasted outdoor party! On the deck, by the pool, or at the beach, you can take your music everywhere. 

Smart Home Devices

Bluetooth technology gives you the ability to easily turn your devices off and on wirelessly without even getting off the couch. This technology is designed to make your life more convenient than ever before, and it can provide essential assistance for seniors and people with mobility issues. By easing the burdens of life in many ways, Bluetooth technology can turn a home into a comfortable, relaxing, and complete atmosphere.

In The Car

Talk about 21st century problems. When operating a motor vehicle, it is extremely dangerous to drive with only one hand while you’re distracted by the smartphone in your other hand. Checking your Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and Facebook feeds is not an appropriate drive-time activity because you should always have both of your hands free while driving. Now, thanks to Bluetooth technology, you can use your voice to interact with your online life while driving safely. You are truly living in the future.

Health Benefits

When it comes to your health, Bluetooth can actually be put to good use. Using a physical activity tracker like Fitbit or apps on your smartphone, you can stay healthy by working out and living an active lifestyle. These devices and apps encourage you to keep track of daily tasks that will contribute to your general well-being and overall health.

My review: AWESOME FIDGET TOY!! I’m very grateful for this gadget. Who isn’t stressed or anxious especially in these Covid days? Stinky ol’ stress can pile up if you let it. You’ve got to do something to get it out. I use the computer a lot these days and it’s stressful and tiring. When I start to feel a little sleepy, I wet my face and grab my headphones and this gadget for a quick session to click away to the beat. It’s pretty good stuff. I’m telling you, it really does release stored-up energy. When I’m not using it, I think it looks pretty cute from afar, so it makes a great decor. It’s a high quality product and it passes the drop test for me, three separate times, with no chips or cracks. That’s excellent because that means this product is durable and can handle a few drops here and there. Don’t be too rough with it, though, play with it with tender thoughts in mind or expect it to break. If you need to be in a room where you have to be quiet, just give those emoji heads a few pinches so you can remain silent. I like to carry this toy around with me, and since it doesn’t fit in my pocket I put it in a cute little drawstring bag to prevent it from damage.

All in all, it’s a pleasing experience for once. Isn’t it great when a gadget does what it’s supposed to do?! Everything on this one is perfect. It feels good when pressed or pinched 🙂

I laugh life off with the help of this thing 🙂 

With this cube by your side – everything is going to be okay!
