In the world of technology, nothing is ever a surprise. The world is moving so fast and you wouldn’t want to be left behind. Everyday someone is creating something new, from robotics to the best phones down to ”tech” cars and the likes, which leads us to what’s new today.
The Germans have created a camera not bigger than a grain of salt and you can call it the future of our health organizations.
This solves a major problem in our health sector and everyone should be looking forward to this.
Using 3-D printing, researchers from the University of Stuttgart built a three-lens camera, and fit it onto the end of an optical fibre the width of two hairs.
The amazing camera can be used to check the human body once injected using a syringe.
This could be a major paradigm shift in the world of our health sector and it sure would bring solutions faster than we previously had.

It took only a few hours to design, manufacture and test the tiny eye, which yielded “high optical performances and tremendous compactness,” the researchers reported. The compound lens is just 100 micrometres (0.1 millimetres or 0.004 inches) wide, and 120 micrometres with its casing. It can focus on images from a distance of 3.0 mm, and relay them over the length of a 1.7-metre (5.6-foot) optical fibre to which it is attached.
The “imaging system” fits comfortably inside a standard syringe needle, said the team, allowing for delivery into a human organ, or even the brain. “Endoscopic applications will allow for non-invasive and non-destructive examination of small objects in the medical as well as the industrial sector,” they wrote. The compound lense can also be printed onto image sensor other than optical fibres, such as those used in digital cameras.
