Can #3DPrinted fingers crack a phoner? #3DThursday #3DPrinting


3dprintingindustry.com shares:

Don’t think you can just scan and print your finger with PLA and fool your scanner, though, it’s more complex than that. Most phone scanners work with a series of electrical circuits coming into contact with one other through the conductive nature of the user’s skin.

Arora reveals they overcame this minor issue by coating these false fingers with metallic particles, which created the right level of conductivity. It hasn’t worked yet, the researchers haven’t handed over the fingers to the police. After they have completed their final tests then they will give them to the officers, though, and we’ll see if we really can crack a phone with a fake finger.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
