Microscopic Camera Smaller Than A Grain Of Salt
1x1x1mm camera sets record for smallest camera in the world.
A research team at Berlin’s Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration have prototyped a cheap and disposable micro-camera that is bound to advance image-capturing technology in the field of endoscopy.
“The lens was at the tip of the endoscope and the sensor at the other end of the glass fiber strand. The new microcamera is small enough for the tip of the endoscope. It has a resolution of 62,500 pixels and transmits the image information through the endoscope via an electrical cable.”
