Yeah, you read that right. The newly announced AIRcable Host XR Bluetooth USB Adapter extends your average 3 meter Bluetooth range to just over 30 Kilometers. How far is that is America, you might ask? Roughly 19 miles. Whoa. Before you all get too excited, you should know that some level of “professional installation” is required to achieve the increased length. Without the pro-level tweaking you’ll get 2 kilometers out of the box, which is still pretty impressive. Bluetooth range has been pushed to these lengths before, but the $129 price point of this particular box makes it one of the first to be in range of the average consumer. Let the games begin!
