Scientists have developed a robot modeled after a worm that will be able to crawl through humans and transmit pictures.
Good intestinal health is important, but often underrated. Like so many things, it’s only when someone starts having a problem that they start to think about it.
And starting to think about it usually means going to the doctor and going to the doctor usually means a COLONOSCOPY. For those of you unfamiliar with this procedure, your trusty doctor uses a very long flexible scope, inserted in a very uncomfortable place (like the back of a Volkswagen) to look at your insides.
Sound appealing? Didn’t think so. Neither does the idea of having some worm like robot crawl through your gut, but take a look at the pictures and YOU decide which one YOU’d rather have go in the exit only.
