Smallest video camera has been developed by engineers at Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration worked together with Awaiba GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institue for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering. The video camera is about as small as a grain of salt, or to be exact it’s 1 cubic millimeter only.
Despite of its small size, this smallest video camera has a resolution of 62,500 pixel, and capable of delivering high resolution video of any recording. What’s the best is that this smallest video camera won’t be an expensive camera to produce. According to the developers, this camera could be a perfect fit for medical. One-use disposal is made possible similar like syringe needle. Also, it could be a very potential spy cam for spying people without any obvious attention from the target.
Frauhofer Institute has planned to roll out this smallest video camera into the market next year 2012.
