American scientists have made a real breakthrough in nanotechnology.
A group of engineers at the University of Washington has invented an incredibly small video camera. It looks like a tiny cube with half a millimetre long sides.
In contrast to its larger counterparts, the innovation lacks the traditional lenses and movable mechanisms system. Instead, the function is carried out by microscopic light-refracting structures, which the scientists refer to as "nano posts". The camera contains 1.6 million of them.
There’s no point in using the tiny camera as an independent device. However, these sorts of gadgets can be built into larger devices. After all, in terms of the quality of shooting, the nano camera is as good as its large-sized counterparts.
