Scientists made a tiny camera that can be put on a beetle. It records where the beetle goes. It gives a beetle's view of the world. A researcher said: "Insects can [cross] rocky environments, which is really challenging for robots....This system can also help us out by letting us see...hard-to-navigate spaces."

The camera is light enough for bugs to wear. It weighs just 250 grams. It has a wireless camera. A big challenge was making the battery. It had to be small, light, and have enough power for a few hours. The researchers said no beetles were hurt in their tests. All the beetles "lived for at least a year" after the tests finished.
