I'd like to know why a photograph of an imprint of an object on this gel is better than a photograph of the object. That applies to fingerprints or anything else.

@TwoTone I imagine it might could get finger prints without worrying about messin' them up. Also, a 3D fingerprint can provide much more information than 2D; a partial print could be more valuble with topographic data unique to an individual. (Unless I`m wrong or full of poo, neither of which would be an invalid description of most of the crap in my head.)

So basically, in theory, this can be used to get the imprint of, say an old 100 dollar bill (kind of just guessing it can do this considering what I saw in the video) and scan it into a computer and then use a 3D printer to make printing plates......all you would really need after that would be the ink.....just saying. This tech can be used for good as well as illegal things when combined with other tech.....in theory.
