postheadericon Researchers create microscopic disposable camera to see up in your guts

It’s true, a team of researchers have created a one-cubic-millimeter throwaway camera, and if they have their way, it could be peeking inside you in the next year. The new tiny shooters, which sport a 250 x 250 pixel resolution, are created using a streamlined process in which the lens and sensor wafers are affixed before being cut into a series of 28,000 little cameras — eliminating the need to mount and wire each one individually. This new mode of production cuts back on cost significantly, allowing physicians to throw away the little guys after routing around in your intestines. According to the camera’s creators, their diminutive invention could make its way into your doctor’s office as early as 2012.

postheadericon OmniVision releases OV6930, the 1.8mm square camera sensor, coming to an incision near you

OV6930Usually we like writing about bigger camera sensors — bigger meaning more light, better quality, and more machismo. But, when you’re dealing with a camera that could very well find itself inserted inside your body, we’re just fine with smaller, thanks and, at 1.8 x 1.8mm, OmniVision‘s new OV6930 is about as small as it gets. No, you won’t be getting 1080p from that like you would from the company’s (relatively) monstrous 3.5mm beast for cellphones, you’ll have to deal with just 400 x 400. No word on whether this model will wind up in a pill like an earlier version from 2006, but give it a nice sugar coating and we’d take one — for science.
