In any case the Chaos Computer Club says this is the first run through when fingerprints have been caricature from far off. The bunch’s pioneer “Starbug” said to CNN, he found himself able to reproduce the thumbprint of the German Minister of Defense Ursula von der Leyen, from a few news photographs. He said he had HD photographs of German Minister of Defense Leyen’s fingers while she was at a presentation in October — standing nine feet far from the authority. The group pioneer said he found himself unable to check von der Leyen’s unique finger impression was precise, however he was still certain it was a workable duplicate.
