Interesting - Tiny Cameras Capture Albatross's Feeding Secrets

I found Tiny Cameras Capture Albatross's Feeding Secrets interesting:

Tiny cameras mounted to the backs of black-browed albatrosses show that the animals, which hunt out at sea, may forage by following killer whales. The findings are just one example of a growing body of research using miniaturized cameras to reveal how animals behave in their natural environment. In this study, more than 28,000 pictures were taken from cameras on three albatrosses. The animals were tagged at a breeding colony on Bird Island, South Georgia earlier this year.

I wonder where else new technology will help us understand our world better?
