Just as WiFi was created to
replace your CAT5 or CAT6 cable connecting your computer to a network, and in
turn, the internet, Bluetooth® Wireless Technology was created to replace the
wires needed to connect small electronic devices together.
Here are some examples of the
things you can do with Bluetooth® wireless technology:
would need a Bluetooth® enabled music player such as a mobile phone, or
Bluetooth® enabled media player.
a Bluetooth® USB adapter (also known as Dongles) or a computer
with a built-in Bluetooth® transceiver, you can play music from your
With any of these devices and
headphones that support the A2DP profile, you can also control the playback so
you never have to take your player out of your pocket, purse, backpack or run
to your computer to stop and change tracks.
There are also Stereo Bluetooth®
Adapters to play any device with a 3.5mm(1/8")
headphone jack to a pair of Bluetooth®
Headphones. You will not be able to
control the music, though most Bluetooth® Headphones have independent volume
controls. Let’s not forget the 2.5mm Adapters for hands free talking on
mobile and cordless phones that are not Bluetooth® enabled.
Oh! I almost forgot about our Bluetooth® Stereo Gateways!
These allow you to transmit stereo audio to and/or from you home audio
system. Therefore you can play the music from your mobile phone or media
player through your home speakers or roam wirelessly while listening to your
home stereo or TV with your Bluetooth® Headphones. In the same section we
also have speakers
boxes with a Bluetooth® receiver built-in to share your music on the go.
Well, you may have already heard of
stuff like that and wonder “what else can Bluetooth® do?” I’m glad you
Keeping with the idea of playing
music, an abilities of some phones can act as an HID (Human Interface Device).
If you are playing the music from your computer, you can control the playback
from anywhere (within 10-100 meters) with your mobile phone. Most phones
able to do this are likely able to control presentation software and/or act
like a mouse in some fashion as well. But wait, there’s more!
And there are actual HIDs out there! If you have a
computer with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology built-in, you can have a wireless
Mouse and/or Keyboard without an adapter sticking out of your USB port. Or get a Bluetooth® USB Dongle and connect a
Mouse, Keyboard, Printer, Digitizer Pad, Game Controllers and several other
devices (up to 8 simultaneously) using JUST ONE USB PORT.
There are tons of additional uses
for Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. If
you have a wire you’d like to replace that you have not seen described here or
