How actress Hedy Lamarr became the ‘Mother of Wi-Fi’

The ‘Mother of ‘Wi-Fi’ ?

By Dr. David Marcinko MBA

Known as “the most beautiful woman in the world,” Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr starred in dozens of films over a career that spanned decades.

She died in 2000. But, there was more to Lamarr than met the eye.

An avid inventor, she worked on everything from a tablet that, when dropped into water, fizzed into instant cola, to frequency hopping — a World War II-era secure communications technology that’s used today in wireless internet, GPS and cell-phones.
