World's smallest video camera is ready to peer inside your body

This tiny camera was designed to shoot video inside the human body, replacing the more common fiber optic endoscope.

It's hard to tell from the picture just how tiny this thing is, but that's not a huge elephant tranquilizer sized hypodermic needle next to it. The camera itself is about 1 millimeter cubed, or about the same size as that eyeball computer we saw a couple of weeks ago.

With 62,500 pixel resolution, the images should be pretty sharp, and what's really neat is the developer Fraunhofer says the camera will be cheap enough to be disposable. They also suggested other possible uses, like using the cameras instead of rear view mirrors on a car for better aerodynamics.

Fraunhofer says they expect the cameras to become available next year.
