Hedy Lamarr, was an American-Austrian actress, inventor and film producer. Born on November 9th, 1914, Lamarr co-invented an early version of frequency-hopping spread spectrum communication! She had no formal training and was primarily self-taught. During World War II, she learned that radio-controlled torpedoes could easily be jammed and set off course. Along with her friend, they developed a device by synchronizing a miniature player-piano mechanism with radio signals. Her invention was granted a patent under U.S Patent 2,292,387 on August 11th, 1942. Throughout her film career, Lamarr appeared in 30 films.


A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires.
