Researchers build camera so light and tiny that beetles can lift them

Scientists have come up with a tiny camera so light that beetles can lift it.

A report published in the BBC said the camera weighs 250 milligrams and the quality of the photos will be low and black and white. The footage can be streamed to a smartphone nearby.

In order to save battery so that the device lasts longer an accelerometer has been accommodated in the system. This has been done so that the device only captures images when beetles move.

The camera can last for six hours on a single charge.

However, the research has raised fresh privacy questions.

The report also noted that the experiment was being carried without any harm o any of the beetles. Its to be believed than these beetles at least lived for a year after this was done.
