    Tokyo (CNN) — Japanese researchers have re-written the meaning of “it’s a hard pill to swallow.”
    A research team from western Japan announced it has invented the world’s first self-propelled, remote-controlled capsule endoscope. The tiny capsule, measuring 1 centimeter in diameter and 4.5 centimeters in length, successfully captured images inside a human stomach and colon, say researchers from Ryukoku University and Osaka Medical College.

    The blue and clear device looks like a large pill with a fin-like driving apparatus. Patients either swallow the capsule or have it inserted rectally.
    The research team says the endoscope’s movement is powered by a small battery and an electromagnet, which also drives the fin. More precise movement is generated outside the body by a joystick which is maneuvered by a researcher.

    We have been developing the Self-Propelling Capsule Endoscope (SPCE) that allows for controllability from outside of the body and real-time observation. What kind of capsule endoscope (CE) is suitable for a controllable SPCE is unclear and a very critical point for clinical application. We compared observing ability of three kinds of SPCEs with different viewing angles and frame rates.
