The endoscope camera in a "pill"

Pop this pill, and eight hours later, doctors can examine a high-resolution video of your intestines for tumors and other problems, thanks to a new spinning camera that captures images in 360 degrees. Developed by the Japanese RF System Lab, the Sayaka endoscope capsule enters clinical trials in the U.S. this month. Don't worry, at around $100, the cam is disposable, so patients can simply flush it away :)
