Hedy Lamarr was an actress from Austria during the Golden Age of film, that no one knew was a super science genius as well. Her early model of the “Frequency Hopping” plays a big part in Wifi, and her name is on the patent. Pretty extraordinary. What do you do when you’re too gorgeous for people to realize you’re intelligent? Get married 6 times and sign your patent away to the Navy with no recognition at all. A very sad story.
Watch the video for a more in depth look. She’s pretty fascinating.
