Abstract :

Recent technology aims to manufacture products in a large scale for cheaper prices and increased quality. The existing technologies have attained a part of it, but the manufacturing technology is working at macro level. The future lies in manufacturing the products right from the molecular level. Research in this direction have been started way back in eighties. At that time manufacturing at molecular and atomic level was considered impossible. But due to the advancement in nanotechnology we have realized it to a certain level. One such product manufactured is the PILL CAMERA, which is used for the treatment of cancer, ulcer and gallstones. It has also made revolution in the field of medicine. This tiny capsule passes through our body, without causing any harm. It takes pictures of our internal organs such as intestine and transmits the same to the receiver of the Computer for the analysis of our digestive system. This process helps in tracking any kind of disease related to digestive system. Also we have discussed the drawbacks of using PILL CAMERA and how these drawbacks can be overcome using Grain sized motor and bi-directional wireless telemetry capsule.
