Swallowable Camera-in-a-pill

Rob: If a colonoscopy would be simply too much for the fragile rose of your rectum, consider swallowing a minuscule tract-exploring camera-in-a-pill. Manufactured by Micron Technology of Boise, Idaho, these tiny little buggers cost only $300 and contain a similarly small CMOS sensor, which snaps a picture every few seconds as it quests through your dark dungeons.

Originally introduced in 2001, it's won an award for the "non-invasive direct visualization of the entire small intestine." Did you know they gave out awards for that? Now you do.

Joel: I'm not sure you swallow pills exactly the same way I do.
