This Beautiful Actress is the reason why we have Wifi now!

Wifi is a technology that changed our lives forever. Now we can access the internet without the need of wires and cables. With portable devices like smartphones, Laptops, tablets, smartwatches and smart glasses gives as an access to the whole world right on the palm of our hands. We can use it to communicate with people around the world, do some of our daily chores and even enjoy entertainment like streaming and gaming.

This beauty is Hedy Lamarr, She is one of the most talented Hollywood actresses in the 1940's. She is gorgeous, beautiful and seductive. I decided to watch some of her movies to see her talent and beauty. She is really stunning and her acting is impressive.

Before she became an Actress , she was a phone operator. A movie producer discovered her and the rest is history.

This elegant Austrian lady is more than a pretty face. Aside from being an Actress she is also a movie producer, Philanthropist and a Scientist.

She is the reason why we enjoy wifi and the internet! During her freetime, Hedy follows her passion in science! She have a lot of inventions under her belt like an improved Stop light and a tablet that turns water into soft drinks. Her most important invention though is the Frequency-hopping spread spectrum. That invention leads to the creation of wifi. Her invention is originally for national security and military use. Now everyone around the world are reliant on the invention she created. Her invention is actually a collaboration between her and George Antheil. Her inventions are not yet revealed to us because it still for military purposes.

Her career is acting but her passion and hobby is science and tinkering. She basically break the stereotype that actresses are dumb.

As a tribute to this beauty, I decided to watch some of her movies and documentary about her on Netflix because we won't be enjoying watching movies with our phones and tablets without her passion in Science. She is actually not a University graduate scientist, Everything she did is self study. She use to hide her passion in science from the public and her being an inventor only got revealed when she received awards about it. Whenever she was bored at her home she is trying to invent things and study science.

Imagine if she didn't decide to pursue acting in America and decided to stay in Austria instead. Imagine if was not discovered. We won't have wifi if it didn't happen. Her acting career actually funded her passion in science and technology. If she didn't become an actress, We won't have wifi. We might be still using wired landline telephones until now and internet might be still dial up.

She might have other inventions that we enjoy today but not yet revealed because most people remember her more as an actress than a self studied inventor. Thanks to this remarkable woman because we have Wifi now because of her.

I recently became familiar with this story about Hedy Lamar and her scientific contributions. I loved to watch her in the movies when I was a kid. She was very beautiful and talented. Many people don't get full credit for the creature comforts we enjoy today. She is on a long list with many others; especially many other women. :)

I decided to write this article because there is going to be an upcoming movie about her. The movie will focus more about her being a scientist than an actress.

this is a steady reminder that if you are passionate of something, you need to try and prove something because the result will work wonders. Right now, I am grateful that she stepped up and create something as we are now benefiting from it.

When she was alive, she sad people only remembers her as a pretty actress and her inventions are seen as irrelevant. Now everyone cant live without it.

Wow, who knew! Thanks for sharing, fergus. Gosh, she was a woman of many talents and was more than just a pretty face. Yet we never hear anything about all her achievements. She probably isn't even credited for any of her inventions!

Thank you for sharing this. There are really some facts that sometimes we missed like asking who are behind the wifi which we are all enjoying now. I will do some more reading about her.

I find it fascinating that she invented wifi for war purposes and to defend the USA from the Nazis and Japan and now all of us are using it for everything from entertainment to jobs. I wonder how she would have felt how far her invention reached.
