Digital imaging technologies have made many documents with monetary value newly vulnerable to counterfeiting. Escher Labs’ FiberFingerprint® technology enables creation of secure, self-authenticating documents using paper texture information.
Blackdust developed a handheld PC peripheral for reading the texture of documents such as checks, envelopes, and currency. An illumination system was developed to enhance texture identification. After CAD modeling, prototypes were produced using laser and SLA fabrication. The design was inspired by the shell of a snail.
