Endoscopes - small cameras or optic fibres that are usually attached to flexible tubing designed to investigate the interior of the body - can be dangerously invasive. Procedures often require sedative medications and some recovery time. Now a researcher at Tel Aviv University is developing a "capsule endoscope" that can move through the digestive tract to detect problems independent of any attachments.
