We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
scan your fingerprint, make a unique phone case!
This is not my idea, I saw it at http://polychemy.com/products/iphone-4-finger-print-case. However, I thought it was a shame not to actually have your own fingerprint on the case.
People have already suggested it's possibly not wise to broadcast your fingerprint. It's my understanding that a system relying on an image of a fingerprint based security is already broken: http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2009/01/biometrics.html
This is not a finished product, it's a proof of concept. Some work is required before you could actually print this for your model of phone. Someone please fork the repo and add some real cases!

We're sure mattvenn would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
