Heady Hedy



During her time Hedy Lamarr was considered one of the most beautiful women on film, but there are few people who seem to be aware she was probably also one of the smartest on film as well.   Hedy Lamarr was actress and inventor, she was responsible along with a friend for inventing the technology that without would render our cell phones and wireless connections useless. 

The technology referred to as "Frequency Hopping" was originally intended to jam enemy signals to make radio controlled torpedos harder to detect.  She gives being a bombshell a whole new definition I'd say.
