The next big thing in really small cameras

In case you missed it, your pocket point-and-shoot is no longer the smallest camera around. Neither is your cell phone. It's not your toy spy camera either. It's a camera the size of a grain of salt, and it was announced earlier this month by researchers in Germany. At 1x1 millimeters in size, it's probably not going to be for sale at your favorite camera store any time soon, but you may find yourself on the other end of this camera via your doctor's office. The device is destined to be immensely helpful in the medical world of endoscopic surgery, but it could also find its way into many other devices as well. And who knows, perhaps the technology could help get a future D-SLR to fit into a teacup?
