Researchers from Stanford's Hopkins Marine Station have developed a two-lensed camera that sticks to the backs of filter-feeding whales with suction cups. The new device has been used to capture unprecedented footage of whales in action, and it's offering new insights into the feeding and swimming behaviours of these aquatic beasts.
