"SHE is chiefly remembered as a femme fatale and a pioneer of the nude scene. But Hedy Lamarr, a Hollywood actress who died in 2000, also played an unlikely off-screen role as a technological pioneer, co-inventing in the 1940s an early incarnation of spread-spectrum wireless technology..After divorcing her husband, Lamarr ran away to America in 1937. She found success in Hollywood, where she met George Antheil, an experimental composer, at a dinner party in 1940. He was known for composing music for “player pianos”, mechanical instruments that play back music encoded as holes punched in a roll of paper. Lamarr realised that Antheil, who shared her opposition to the Nazis, could help her develop an idea to make radio transmissions extremely difficult to jam or intercept."
