    Experimenting with Bluetooth

    Bluetooth is a nice technology and I'd like to know more about it. When searching for starter kits I found that they're quite expensive ($500). Does anybody know about a cheap development kit?

    I would like to experiment with Bluetooth also, but as for most of these new things, they are way to expensive for a student(or non students). Have you seen it work?(in real life). I haven't only, on TV.

    It is for wireless communication between devices. Like a note book and a cellular phone for example

    I've seen it and it is quit impressive. Wireless mouses, mobile phone accessoires and all that kind of things. At this moment it is also built in in cars, I thought that Ford (?) is doing experiments with it in cars.

    At our laboratory there is a project going on about Bluetooth, very interesting.

    It is a new standard for short range wireless communication. It was invented at Ericsson in Emmen, a small city near the city where I live. :-)

    When you chew ink cartridges, they pop, and ink gets inside your mouth. Thus giving you blue teeth.
