This year I started the 100daychallenge on instagram. I’ve chosen to draw inspiring women and made a guessing game out of it. First I post items as hints, of some a quote and in the end a portrait of the respective woman. so fun to do!
due to research times and this as a side project I decided to stretch my 100dayproject over a longer time not posting everyday but doing a guessing game time by time.
First Woman to guess was Hedy Lamarr, an Austrian born American Film actress and inventor. She invented a lot of things and had a big fascination for science. Fun invention is the soda streamer but most important she codeveloped a radio guidance system the wlan and buetooth of our days now is based on and which used spread sprectrum and frequency hopping technology so it couldn’t been followed anymore. In 1997 she got an award for this from the Electronic Frontier Foundation. But She wasn't just beautiful and intelligent she also had a good sense of humor. When they called her up to tell her she would get the award, her first words were, Hedy Lamarr being Hedy Lamarr, ‘Well, it’s about time.'
