CSR recently met with the SWIPE tech team from Sky News to talk about how Bluetooth® is changing the way we interact with the world. Reporting from "The Future is Smart" exhibition organised by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, the report focuses on CSRmesh™ having a key role in the future of wireless technology: "Bluetooth isn’t just about mobile headsets anymore, a new generation of wireless technology is ready to transform homes, exercise, medicine and even farming. It’s because Bluetooth 4.0 lets devices talk to each other using very little power, like these light bulbs from Cambridge-based company CSR. One app can control tens of thousands of [light bulbs] at once, right down to changing the colour of each individual bulb." http://news.sky.com/story/1299435/swipe-battlefield-drones-and-bluetooth... <link expires 17/07/2014>
