Hedy Lamarr is mainly remembered as one of the most glamourous Oscar-nominated movie stars of the 1940s, but her greatest legacy should be her groundbreaking contribution as a scientist. It’s true that Hedy was an avid inventor and the person behind advances in communication technology that led to the cell phone, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth technology we all use today.
