IDENTITY Fingerprint Substitute

IDENTITY Fingerprint Substitute

Identity is a counter-surveillance fingerprint kit. A box of Identity comes with 21 fingerprints, each with a unique pattern embedded in the silicone that can be read by any fingerprint imaging device. Contrary to real fingerprints, they are easily replaceable and will not leave traces anywhere.

This project is aimed to develop an alternative solution that takes advantage of the convenience and the sophistication of fingerprint imaging without the security compromises, and at the same time raise awareness of the danger in over-trusting fingerprints.
