SmartPhone Display

Imagine if your smartphone display could tell if you were developing a cold.

Researchers from Polytechnique Montreal and Gorilla Glass manufacturer Corning are working on just that. The idea is that special spit sensors would be embedded in your cell phone display and be connected to your smart phone's processor.

The applications are vast: assess blood levels, take your temperature, recommend vital vitamins that your body is lacking. The displays would work alongside Google and Apple apps in order to give you a more accurate health analysis for you.

While this technology is only in the "Patent Pending” phase you can be sure that the smart cell phone of the future will have a smart display to go with it.
