Aims to report on a new trend of research and development in the wireless capsule endoscope.


Presents a conceptual design of a wireless capsule endoscope having new features like navigation control, self‐propulsion, higher rate image transmission, acquisition of samples, application of medications and so forth.


The basic principle has been verified by experiments. Seems promising.

Research limitations/implications

Yet to need a lot of effort for commercialization.

Practical implications

If successful, it will provide another way of least invasive medical treatment that must reduce pain of patients drastically.


Taking advantage of the state‐of‐the‐art micro‐technology it suggests a further step beyond the current wireless capsule endoscope.
