We’ve seen some pretty tiny spy cameras so far, and scientists keep pushing the limits. Researchers from the University of Washington have developed a camera that’s so tiny, that it looks like a backpack for beetles. If you’ve ever wanted to see the world from a bug’s perspective, now you can.
At just 200 microns in diameter, this may very well be the smallest camera in the world. Patrick Gill, a senior research scientist for a technology licensing company named Rambus, has developed a camera sensor that can capture pictures while still retaining a near-microscopic size.
