New tiny camera can detect hidden tumors using technology based on butterfly vision - and it costs $19,800 LESS than the cheapest FDA device



Surgeons could detect hidden cancers using a new camera inspired by a butterfly's eye. 
The tiny device developed by researchers in Illinois uses infrared signals to 'feel' tumors that have been coated in dye, in the same way that tropical morpho butterflies guide themselves through the rainforest. 
Connected to a pair of goggles worn by the surgeon, the minuscule camera's signals can show if there are any lingering tumors after surgery.
