Biometric devices (fingerprint, face, retina, etc. recongnition) seem to be the closest thing to unbreakable security. Actually, it's not that hard
at all to fool one of these devices.
Fingerprint recongnition systems are the easiest to get past. Simply getting a sample of a print somewhere, transferring on tape, and sticking the
tape to the surface will do the trick. In fact, most of the time you don't ned to go through all that trouble. You can just breathe on the surface
and it'll recongnize the "print".
Facial recongnition? Why can't you just hold up a picture of the person to the camera? Same for retina, but that's a bit harder since you really
need a good hi res pic of the person.
