The late Hedy Lamarr would be 107 years old today.
(passed away on January 19, 2000) [en.wikipedia.org]

She is now regarded as the inventor of radio frequency-hopping, which
is the basis of spread spectrum technology.

Quote
Alexandra Dean, director of "Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story"
...And that basic idea of frequency-hopping became part of what's known
as spread spectrum. Spread spectrum is what's in all of our technology
today. I mean Bluetooth is probably the most purely similar to what Hedy
Lamarr invented. And WiFi too. But spread spectrum is in a huge amount
of inventions that we use on a daily basis.

She also has the distinction of portraying the first female orgasm on film...
