The name "Bluetooth" is an Anglicised version of the Scandinavian Blåtand/Blåtann (Old Norse blátǫnn), the epithet of the tenth-century king Harald Bluetooth who united dissonant Danish tribes into a single kingdom and, according to legend, introduced Christianity as well. The idea of this name was proposed in 1997 by Jim Kardach who developed a system that would allow mobile phones to communicate with computers. At the time of this proposal he was reading Frans G. Bengtsson's historical novel The Long Ships about Vikings and King Harald Bluetooth.
The Bluetooth logo is a bind rune merging the Younger Futhark runes Runic letter ior.svg (Hagall) (ᚼ) and Runic letter berkanan.svg (Bjarkan) (ᛒ), Harald's initials.
It took a few thousand years of imagining and pretending that magic was real until we made it real with technology. Does that speak to a collective Consciousness or maybe a deeper form of genetic memory or was it just because the new generation heard about all the stuff the old generations was dreaming about?

But it can not be denied that our current technology allows us to do for real the things that magic was supposed to be able to pull off. Could it be that the human mind somehow intuitively knows what is possible . Maybe the things that we are capable of imagining are the only things that can be? ***snip***
