Italian Scientists Put Robot Spiders In Your Colon

OP: Sockatume writes "Scientists in Italy have developed a robot which will move around the lower digestive tract using legs. The "Spider-Pill" is fitted with a camera and will stow its legs until it reaches the lower intestine. Once there it can crawl around and take pictures under direction from surgeons. Its USP is that it's more appealing that an endoscopy."
