Employees of the German Fraunhofer Institute have created the smallest camcorder in the world. It represents a cube side length is 1 mm.

Total square matrix has 250 pixels horizontally and vertically. Thus, its resolution is about 0.06 megapixels. For comparison, the resolution of the camera in low cost mobile phones is about 0.3 megapixels. In the "top" models, this figure is more than 8 megapixels.

Novelty was released in collaboration with the Japanese company Awaiba, which is the developer of the matrix. According to the scientists, the cost of the camera is so low that the device can be disposed of after use.

It is assumed that mikrokamera find application in medical technology, as well as in consumer electronics and automotive industries. It is expected that mass production of millimeter cameras will establish in 2012.
