Hedy Lamarr is remembered as a stunning and amazing actress who was a legend in Hollywood's Golden Age. What they might not remember her for is the fact that she co-patented the technology that we use today in Wi-Fi, cell phones and even GPS.

Author Richard Rhodes became intrigued with Hedy and after writing multiple stories about the construction of the nuclear bomb, the pulitzer author wrote "Hedy's Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World."

It was uncovered that she was the co-holder to patents that would father the very technology that we use today on a daily basis. Technology like, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cell phones and GPS were all patents that she was a part of.
Just think about it. If it wasn't for an actress who was a star in the 1930's we might not have some of the things that most of us can't do without. I mean, can you imagine not having a cell phone or wi-fi internet access?
