Hedy Lamarr – Brains and Beauty
Today is Hedy Lamarr‘s 101th birthday. Very rarely do you meet a woman quite like her. A beautiful woman, a celebrated film actress, and an inventor. And like important stuff. Stuff we use today! The principles of her work in the 1940s are now being used in WiFi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology. And we thought Amal Clooney was all that!
She was married six times. And there’s no wonder – a woman like Hedy would intimidate most men. I doubt they could appreciate her awesomeness.
Even Google is celebrating her today with a truly delightful animated clip. Check out Google’s Google Doodle.
