In between filming and at the height of World War II, she and a composer, George Antheil, came up with the idea of a “Secret Communications System” that would randomly manipulate radio frequencies as they traveled between transmitter and receiver, thus encrypting sensitive signals from any would-be interceptors . 在拍电影的间隙，在二战战事正酣之时，她和作曲家乔治•安太尔提出了一种“秘密通讯系统”的设想：在发射机和接收器之间传输信号时，“秘密通讯系统”将随机改变无线电频率，从而为敏感信号加密，使任何潜在的拦截器无从破解。Their invention, patented in 1941, laid the groundwork for the spread-spectrum technology used today in Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and some cellphones. Ever inventive, Lamarr also came up with soluble cubes that would turn water into something like Coca Cola, as well as a “skin-tautening technique based on the principles of the accordion .” Cool.他们的发明在1941年获得专利，为今天的Wi-Fi、全球定位系统、蓝牙和某些手机使用的扩频技术奠定了基础。拉玛一直富有创造性，她还发明了水溶性立方体(能够将水变成类似可口可乐的东西)，以及一种“基于手风琴原理的皮肤紧致技术。” 酷！We know, right: total babe . That’s why she had a two-decade career playing femmes fatale in Hollywood movies. But while the rest of her co-stars were sunning themselves or picking a substance to abuse, Hedy Lamarr was coming up with the system of wireless communication that would later form the foundation of cellphones, Wi-Fi, and most of our modern life.
