Medical Video Pills
from the one-extra-step-for-mankind dept
Researchers in London have announced the construction of the "video" pill. This capsule contains a small video camera and transmitter within it, allowing doctors to view the insides of a patient much less invasively than using an endoscope. We're finally starting to see the fusion of technology with traditional medical practices, expect to see a lot more advanced medical devices in the next few years (a much better bet than genomics companies, which will have about a 5 year span before products start rolling out).
