    Hedy Lamarr

    Hedy Lamarr ( /ˈhɛdi/; November 9, 1913 – January 19, 2000) was an Austrian-American actress who was a major contract star of MGM's "Golden Age".

    Lamarr also co-invented – with composer George Antheil – an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary to wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.

    Here's a find by SFwolverine.
