Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Given Imaging is the maker of the unique swallowable Pill Camera for diagnosis of disease of the gastrointestinal tract.
The M2A capsule consists of a microchip camera and light-emitting diodes that act as a flash, as well as Zarlink's RF transmitter chip, antenna and two silver- oxide batteries. It is swallowed by the patient and then passes through the digestive tract.
The images taken are transmitted by the RF chip to a data recorder in a belt worn by the patient.
Great use of miniture technology. It sounds futuristic, but its used already today.
