New York, Oct 21 (UiTV/IANS)- An Indian-American researcher and his team have created life-size 3D hand models, complete with all five fingerprints using a high-resolution 3D printer that can produce the same ridges and valleys as a real finger.
Like any optical device, fingerprint and hand scanners need to be calibrated, but currently there is no standard method for doing so.
"This is the first time a whole hand 3D target has been created to calibrate fingerprint scanners," said Distinguished Professor Anil Jain from Michigan State University (MSU).
"As a byproduct of this research, we realised a fake 3D hand, essentially a spoof, with someone's fingerprints, could potentially allow a crook to steal the person's identity to break into a vault, contaminate a crime scene or enter the country illegally," Jain cautioned.

Washington, Oct 21 (UiTV/IANS)- Scientists have said NASA's Cassinis mission has allowed them to observe the pattern of seasonal changes on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, in exquisite detail.
