Thought this was kinda cool...

Boyle and Smith created the first successful Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) in 1969 while working at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey.

Boyle and Smith did not set out to reinvent photography; they were trying to develop better electronic memory. To that end, they developed a silicon plate with millions of light-sensitive photocells. The CCD accumulated light-induced charges over its surface, and transported them to be read out at the edge of the light-sensitive area. The process makes use of an effect theorized by Albert Einstein, who won the 1921 Nobel Prize for the idea.
