      We will be able to find diseases in the intestines, such as colon cancer or coeliac disease. The advantage of our little pill is, it will have a tiny ultrasound device inside, so that we can investigate the tissue behind the actual colon wall and we are not only relying on the superficial video data. The project will finish in the end of 2018, but it is highly likely it will continue, to improve the system and to add more functionalities.
