Beetles with tiny cameras get a peek in tight spaces

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.
