Hollywood legend Hedy Lamarr invented wireless communication — but the US government refused to take her seriously.
During World War II, Hedy Lamarr was the epitome of beauty — but she also had brains.
She worked alongside composer George Antheil to develop her idea of "frequency hopping," which would've prevented military radios from being bugged. Her patent was brushed off by the US Navy, who classified it and filed it away — until they gradually began developing technologies based on it, with zero credit to her.
Luckily, a researcher unearthed the original patent, and Lamarr was given the Electronic Frontier Foundation Award shortly before her death in 2000.
But frequency hopping is the reason we have many modern technologies like WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
