The Stack: New tool allows smartphone camera to record fingerprints

A little outside my remit, but cool: New tool allows smartphone camera to record fingerprints. “A new prototype biometric tool, designed by researchers in India, enables a smartphone camera to act as a fingerprint scanner. Saksham Gupta, Sukhan Anand and Atul Rai from Department of Computer Science at Delhi Technological University used an Android smartphone to extract fingerprints from close-up shots of a finger. The researchers used a 16MP camera with a 1920×1080 resolution to get the results.”
