The Little Camera you Swallow

The WSJ reported today that Given Imaging, a maker of camera pills that are swallowed whole was acquired by Covidien for $860 million. The pills which are about the size of large vitamins have a mini camera inside and are used to detect and monitor gastrointestinal bleeding and colon anomalies. Images are transmitted wirelessly to recording devices that the patient wears around his or her waist.
