Pill-sized camera to see your insides approved by FDA

A bite-sized camera has been approved by the FDA as an alternative for patients who are unable to have a complete colonoscopy.

The pill-shaped capsule has a camera on both ends, and navigates through the intestines over an 8-hour period, taking high-speed photos which are then sent to a device worn by a patient that are later examined by a doctor, Mashable reported.

The device isn’t meant to be used in place of a colonoscopy, but rather in tandem with the procedure.
