Hedy Lamarr

Hedy Lamarr – Hollywood Star and Inventor

Through Buzzfeed I came across the amazing Hedy Lamarr, who was not only a famous movie star from the 1930ies to the 50ies, but also the inventor of the frequency hopping technology, that is broadly used today for Wifi and GPS.

Wikipedia writes

During her first marriage, Lamarr developed a keen interest in applied science, and bored by her acting career, utilized this knowledge as an inventor.

Who would not be bored from being the “most beautiful woman in the world” and a style icon for a whole generation of women?

So, aspiring (movie) stars of this century, let’s be inspired by this outstanding woman and invent something substantial. I will clearly spend the whole day reading Hedy’s biography and invite you to do the same.
