In the late 1930’s Hedy Lamarr was billed as ‘the world’s most beautiful woman.’ She was an actress. But during the Second World War, with a partner, developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology. These methods were, not long ago, incorporated into Bluetooth and WIFI technology. In 2014 she was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. What do you think was her greatest contribution? - Photo Wikipedia
