Google Doodle For Hedy Lamarr

Today on Google's home page is a special Google logo, aka Doodle, for Hedy Lamarr, Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler. Today would be her 101st birthday, born on November 9, 1914 in Vienna, Austria-Hungary. She was not just known as a hollywood star, but also an inventor of what laid the groundwork for Bluetooth, GPS and Wifi.

She was known at one point as "the most beautiful woman in the world," during her Hollywood days from the late 1930s to the 1950s. She was married six times in her life. She died at the age of 85 on January 19, 2000 in Casselberry, Florida.

She invented Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) is a method of transmitting radio signals by rapidly switching a carrier among many frequency channels, using a pseudorandom sequence known to both transmitter and receiver. It is used as a multiple access method in the frequency-hopping code division multiple access (FH-CDMA) scheme.

Here is the video Doodle Google posted today for her:
