Hedy Lamarr was so much more than a beautiful face (she was, historically speaking, among the most beautiful), she was a brilliant, innovative, original thinker, inventor, and and scientist. She helped Howard Hughes design better planes by studying streamlining in birds and fishes. She founded Aspen as a ski resort. She produced movies (unheard of for a woman at the time). She came up with techniques on cosmetic surgery to hide scars. And most impressive, she essentially invented Frequency Hopping (along with composer George Antheil) which is the secret behind Bluetooth and Wifi technology. And she did it all with almost no recognition or reward. Her story is one of the many obscured in history by both her beauty and her sex. But now her time has come!
