Unscramble the Blue Letters

Take, for example, this beautiful blue nacre ehlls. This was actually used by the Mayans as an artificial tooth replacement. We're not quite sure why they did it. It's hard. It's rdualeb. But it also had other very nice properties. In fact, when they put it into the jawbone, it could integrate into the jaw, and we know now with very sophisticated imaging technologies that aptr of that integration comes from the fact that this material is isngddee in a very specific way, has a beautiful chemistry, has a bulueftia architecture. And I think in many ways we can sort of think of the use of the blue nacre shell and the aynsam as the first real application of the bluetooth technology.

Original Text

Take, for example, this beautiful blue nacre shell. This was actually used by the Mayans as an artificial tooth replacement. We're not quite sure why they did it. It's hard. It's durable. But it also had other very nice properties. In fact, when they put it into the jawbone, it could integrate into the jaw, and we know now with very sophisticated imaging technologies that part of that integration comes from the fact that this material is designed in a very specific way, has a beautiful chemistry, has a beautiful architecture. And I think in many ways we can sort of think of the use of the blue nacre shell and the Mayans as the first real application of the bluetooth technology.
