A large component of research and development is something called Intellectual Property.
"Intellectual property (IP) is a number of distinct types of legal monopolies over creations of the mind, both artistic and commercial, and the corresponding fields of law. Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets, such as musical, literary, and artistic works; ideas, discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs. Common types of intellectual property include copyrights, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights and trade secrets in some jurisdictions." -Wikipedia
This being said, while we would love to put all of our hard work on display, in the interests of protecting the IP of our clients and our own projects, we can only give the vague details on some of the types of projects that we have undertaken.
