That's Hedy!

One of the world's most fascinating people was the late Hedy Lamarr. Why? Because the Austrian and American film actress was not only successful in MGM films, she was the inventor (yes, has the patents to show it) of spread spectrum technology, a form of radio communications that would help defeat the Nazi's.

You know we call that invention today? Wi-Fi and Bluetooth!

Today would have been her 103rd birthday. There is a one-woman show about her life playing in Chicago.
