Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

12th August 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Hedy Lamarr was considered as the most beautiful woman in the world. She was an Austrian-Jewish émigré who invented a covert communication system to try and help defeat the Nazis, then gave her patent to the Navy, but was ignored and told to sell kisses for war bonds instead.

Only towards the very end of her life, tech pioneers discovered her concept which is now used as the basis for secure WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth.
