Unusual R&D Companies

When you think of Disney what do you think about?

Movies, books, maybe a theme park right?

Did you think about them as an R & D company? I know I didn't.

But lately they've been coming out with some really interesting things. The latest being Paper Generators.

The theory behind it is that you rub paper and it generates electricity to light up things, (or deal with e-ink displays/etc)

I'm really impressed, I wonder what other companies are doing some interesting R&D that you wouldn't expect. Do you know of any? please tell me!
