by Richard Rhodes
The surprising story of a pivotal invention produced during World War II by a pair of most unlikely inventors — an avant-garde composer and the world’s most glamorous movie star. Trained as an engineer, brilliant but underestimated because of her gender and her beauty, Hedy Lamarr teamed up with composer George Antheil to invent a way to radio-guide torpedoes and to use a technique called frequency-hopping to insure that the enemy could not jam their signals. Lamarr and Antheil secured a patent, but the U.S. Navy did not adopt the device, which nevertheless would form the foundations of today’s Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies.
by Ursula K. Le Guin
