Fingerprint Scanning LCD

If you were like me, you couldn't help but chuckle whenever you watched a sci-fi movie where, at some point, someone would press their fingers/palm against an LCD to scan their fingerprints.

Well, once again we're shown that fiction does push science further and faster - and what's fiction eventually ends up becoming reality.

AU Optronics has just annouced an LCD with an integrated light sensor and... as you'd expect from the title:  a fingerprint scanner.

So, next time we watch one of those science-fiction movies... this part won't be able to be considered "fiction" anymore.
