Belated Happy Birthday to Hedy Lamar

My brother Steve emailed me at the beginning of November to remind me that Hedy Lamar, one of the most gorgeous stars in Hollywood, would have been 101 on November 9th. She died in 2000 at the age of 86.

I totally forgot to honor her. As the author of DigiDame, I should have recognized this amazing woman because she was much more than a pretty face. Lamar was an inventor and the work she did layed the ground work for the Bluetooth,  GPS and Wi-Fi.  In fact,  Lamarr was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014. 

I may have forgotten, but Google didn’t. They honored her with a Google Doodle. Watch the above video. For more details about Lamar, read the Huffington Post story.

Happy birthday Hedy Lamar.
