Happy Birthday Hedy Lamarr


Today Google is not just delighting people everywhere with their doodle dedicated to Hedwig Eva Kiesler aka Hedy Lamarr, classic Hollywood actrice and inventor. They are also telling the world about a female scientist, who, even though she died years ago, continues to be an important part of history, as her creations are still at the base of many things in our lives today such as bluetooth and GPS, amongst others.

So there was no way we could not share this doodle, for it is much more than an entertaining clip on Google’s home page today.

Google’s efforts when it comes to promoting science is to be applauded, and if this helps people check out Hedy Lamarr’s life, if only on Wikipedia, and get inspired by her accomplishments, all for the better.
