    Gummy bears taste good, Gummy bears are fun, Gummy bears can be used to beat a fingerprint scanner, so why use one?

    Oh, how do you do that? Do they pick up the imprint off the plate or something?

    My first thought - and for the record I've never even read anything about fingerprint scanners - much less seriously researched them - but wouldn't a copy-print such as the type that a gummy-bear might be able to create of my fingerprint be reversed (or backwards - like a mirror image) when applied to a scanner?

    I'm sure they have something like this in some UK stores.

    do you mean gummy bears? :D

    Seriously I am guessing you mean something to mirror-image the scan once again to set it "straight" so to speak?
