Well Hitachi (the original makers of the HGST hard drives before they sold that to Western Digital) also makes a "personal massager" which everyone uses as a sex toy so there is that😂

The SGR-A1 is an automated sentry gun (an "aim bot") to be deployed on the Korean DMZ. It was developed by Samsung.

Actually, Hitachi hated having it used for that purpose according to sources. below is an excerpt from the "Rebranding" section.

Quote

Because of its concerns about having its notable technology brand name attached to a popular sex toy, Hitachi decided to cease production of the Magic Wand in 2013.[11] Vibratex director of operations Eddie Romero told Engadget that Hitachi is an extremely staid company and was uncomfortable being associated with the best-selling masturbation aid.[11] Vibratex persuaded Hitachi to continue manufacturing the device, to rename it the "Original Magic Wand", to use lighter, more durable materials, and to omit any reference to Hitachi.[11] The newly named device returned to the market on 25 June 2013, with improved engineering and modified graphic design on its accompanying box.[19][71] It was sold as the "Original Magic Wand Vibrator" by Good Vibrations.[71]

Imagine being uncomfortable with any best-selling product.

Considering it was a best-selling product, I doubt it was uncomfortable for the purchaser 🤣

Slightly related fun-facts:

 

GE sells clothes dryers, and nuclear reactors.

Hyundai is the worlds largest-volume shipbuilder (at least at one point they were).

Daewoo makes TVs, and a select-fire 5.56x45 rifle for the South Korean military.

Corning makes the baking dishes your mother/grandmother uses, and windows for manned spacecraft.

Beyer Chemical doesn't just make aspirin, they also make cattle and livestock feed.

Samsung is a chaebol, one of the megacompanies that not only plays a massive role in the South Korean economy, but effectively shapes a large part of its society (including multiple corruption scandals).  If there's some kind of electronics or machinery involved, Samsung probably makes it.

They also made cars for a time before GM bought the brand.

Samsung started small, selling fish and vegetables.
