Norwegian scientists are currently developing a next-generation pill that once swallowed will stream HD video images of the inside a patient’s digestive tract, in real time. The camera equipped endoscopic capsule is equipped with a HD video camera, radio transmitter, light source, radio transmitter and miniature battery.
Due to the size of the HD stream the researchers have had to create an algorithm that compresses the video to three percent of its original size.
The research project, named “Melody ,” is a collaboration between Oslo University Hospital, the University of Oslo, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment, and 22 other partners.
