WASHINGTON (WABC) -- There are lots of bugs with a new camera system, but that's actually the goal.
Researchers at the University of Washington developed a GoPro-style recorder just for beetles.
It fits on an insect's back.
The setup includes a remote control, so a human operator can get a 360-degree look at the critter's surroundings.
The purpose is to use the technology for a peek inside incredibly tight spaces.
