The pill is about an inch long and a third of an inch in diameter. A small receiver is worn on the waist to capture images from the device at a rate of two per second. The pill is.... gotten rid of about four hours after ingestion. The article states that the pill will cost about $300 for patients, implying it's a one-use item. Personally, even if I got my money back for returning the pill, I think I'd just write them a check and be done with it; some things just aren't worth $300.
