Leggi:  Qu'est-ce que Champcoin (TCC)?

The S3 drivers noticed that they were getting hundreds of cancelled bookings. Praful Shinde of the Maharashtra Tourist Permit Union, one of the architects of the S3 app, said, "We suspected something was amiss when our company started getting bookings that were immediately cancelled. We checked our database and found that these phoney reservations were made by the same phone numbers. After some digging, we found that one of these numbers belonged to the driver of a rival company."

This is the story of Hedy Lamarr, a famous Hollywood actress who inspired the character of Catwoman in DCEU.

What is something that most people don't know?

After meeting the co-founder of MGM, Louis B. Meyer, who promoted her as “The Ecstacy Lady” and “World's most beautiful woman”, she ventured into Hollywood and made a mark there, working with the Holly hunks of her time. Some of her hits include:

1. Algiers

2. Ecstacy

3. Lady of the Tropics

4. Samson and Delilah

5. Ziegfeld Girls

6. Boom Town

7. The Strange Woman.

Her aura was such that Anne Hathaway (who played this character in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises) had to watch all her videos in order to incorporate her style of acting, breathing before playing the character of Catwoman.

What is something that most people don't know?

That was just the one side of her life….

The other side of the story: she was also an inventor, whose study helps this modern world.

At the beginning of the World War II, she, along with the composer, George Antheil, developed a radio-guidance system for the Allied torpedoes (an underwater explosive, small missile-like structure which used to detonate when near a target or when its hits a target).

Their radio-guidance system used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology, which used to prevent the jamming by Axis powers.

Their work made it impossible for German submarines to interrupt the radio-controlled torpedoes by spreading the frequency over a much broader bandwidth of 88 frequency (same as number of piano keys). They took out the patent for their Secret Communication System and showed it to the US Navy.

However, the Navy rejected the system, to be used by them later in 1950s, when they used it to locate the position of enemy submarines.

Their work has now been recognised as a predecessor of the “spread-spectrum” wireless technology, which is used in GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and our smartphones.

However, her patent was uncredited, which now evaluates to a $30 billon worth invention.

She received several honours for her inventions, including the prestigious Electronic Frontier Foundation Award.

What is something that most people don't know?

Truly a legend whose contribution we forgot, without whom our daily life would have been next to impossible.
