MagnaChip image sensor helps you take a good look inside yourself

Wireless pill camera

Talk about taking the red pill! If you really want to know what's going on in the world of your digestive tract, the pill-size camera will take you to Zion. Pill cameras have been out for a while, but doctors plan to use a new image sensor developed by South Korean semiconductor manufacturer MagnaChip to get up-to-the-minute information about what's troubling patients down below. The MagnaChip sensor is specifically developed to handle the romantically low-lit atmosphere of your intestines. This tiny disposable Gilligan can take up to 50,000 photos on its eight-hour tour through your innards, and report back wirelessly to a hard drive worn on your belt (which doubles as a fashion accessory, to boot).
