    Hi: all:

    I_Was thinking about the finger printing technology. I was thinking
    that some entrepreneur should be able to form a fake finger that would
    allow an imposter to hack into someone's computer. Here is how it
    would work: Y0U lift someone's fingerprint from something that the
    person has touched. The company then forms a Rubber finger based on
    the lifted print. Now w/ this fake finger, you should be able to log
    into that person's computer

    what do you think of this idea? Do you think that there would be a
    Niche market for this kind of service?

    A converse way of asking my question is: Don't you think that finger
    scanners on computers would be vulnerable to this type of hacking?

  2. Yes. It has already been done. With a gummy bear. And that is completely
    true. :)
