From FLV to HTML5? Yes, and Adobe calls this tool Wallaby.

We missed this in the fall when it first premiered at Adobe Max but caught it today via Engadget:

[Adobe’s] Labs research team has just released an experimental new dev tool, dubbed Wallaby, that’s targeted at taking Flash-encoded artwork and animations and turning them into a more compatible mix of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Of course, the intent here is not some magnanimous move to free us from the shackles of Flash — Adobe openly admits that the initial goal for the new tool will be to help convert animated banner ads so that they work on the iOS platform — but hey, even bad tools can be used for good sometimes, right?
