Recently, Business Insider magazine ran this story:

…it reviews the accomplishments of the Bell Labs scientists who invented
the CCD, in response to a challenge from their boss, reportedly “in one hour.”  
They won the Nobel Prize.

The Sony Mavica, Apple Quicktake-100, the Kodak-modified Nikon F3 - which was
the first DSLR- on which Kodak “didn’t move fast enough…”  and now the Pill Cam.

Bell Labs was also the birthplace of Unix.  The internet would likely have evolved 
differently, and more slowly, had AT&T Unix (and then Berkeley Unix) not predated it.
