Holography is a form of photography that allows an image to be recorded in three dimensions. Smart holograms use materials called hydrogels that shrink or swell in response to local environment conditions. These smart holograms can be used as sensors to detect chemical imbalances in potentially fatal situations.

Smart Holograms is a company created from the Institute of Biotechnology at Cambridge University. They have developed a handheld syringe to measure water content in aviation fuel tanks because if it’s not right, the engines can freeze up in mid-air. image

This same technology may soon be applied to patients with diabetes, cardiac problems, kidney disorders or high blood pressure. The new Smart Holograms have the ability, for example, to detect blood sugar levels in a diabetics, which could make self-diagnosis much simpler, cheaper and more reliable.
