This one reads like a story from a science fiction book. Well, maybe not now in 2016, but it would have, ten or fifteen years ago.
A murder victim’s phone may provide clues about his homicide. But his finger is apparently in too decayed a state to unlock the phone. So the police are taking an interesting route: they are asking a 3D print lab to create a replica of the dead man’s finger.
“But what about an artificial finger’s lack of conductivity?” you ask.
According to MacRumors, “Engineers coated the printed fingers in a thin layer of metallic particles so that the fingerprint scanner can read them.”
