IDair fingerprint scanner captures your print from 6 meters away

I'm not sure why this tech scare the hell out of me but it does.

The system takes a snapshot when triggered and uses pattern recognition to pick out the fingers. Edge detection and sharpening is used to virtually scan the fingerprint, which is then compared to the database. IDair’s current customers are military in nature, but one fitness chain is testing it as a way to stop the practice of keycard sharing.

Is there a chance to use wax or silicone finger print overlays to trick this system?

link catalogue every human being on the planet?

you'd be better off wearing gloves if you're worried about it, honestly they can get your print a million other ways if they wanted to. This particular device at first glance is for a more en mass approach.

It may be able to capture your print but how can they give a name and story to it, unless it's simply for a criminal/terrorist program to link crimes with people who think they have left no trace.

I imagine they would just walk around downtown if they could 'printing' for the day.

Well I foresee a fitness chain that is at risk of going out of business.

Putting a photo of the member on a card is a rather inconvenient and expensive solution so this has promise.

Those pesky identical twins...this will put a stop to their shenanigans once and for all.
