Scientists Installed a Tiny Wireless Go-Pro Camera On The Back Of a Beetle

Have you ever wondered how the world looks like from the view of a tiny insect as a beetle?

Well, the researchers at the University of Washington are giving us all a chance for a fascinating ant-man view by successfully installing a tiny wireless camera on the back of a beetle, while paving the way for miniature robots.

The scientists published their research on July 15 in Science Robotics and are planning on at attaching the cameras to moths and spiders in the future.

The completely flightless Weevil, a type of beetle, was discovered in Papua New Guinea this week. The scales stood out to the discoverers as listed in their report, and 'reminded the authors of Chewbacca's dense fur.' 

Awesome. The force is strong in this one.
