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!
