    Funny that. I'd rather my dog have access. She has more of a chance in ordering something useful.

    What about an elephant's trunk? I got me some elephants roaming about, making a mess.

    Questionable video, IMO! Looks like they are just using the cats paw to push the button and not actually scanning it.

    The sounds effects and screen are very easy to photo shop.

    Although, I have no pets, so it really doesn't matter to me.

    That might be a good way to fool the NSA; don't use your own prints, use your pet's! haha :p

    I have to agree. That looks faked. Why can't they show video of training the fingerprint scanner using the cat's paw? Why does the only sound in the entire video sound like it's dubbed?

    I wonder if one could register a plastic finger "scuplture" and later use it to unlock the phone?

    Pressing the button won't unlock it, you would still need a passcode or swipe to unlock.

    DaNgEr... Danger! love how JS has played w/ it.

    With the iPhone 5s you can simply hold your finger on the home button, if it's the correct print it will perform the same action as slide to unlock.

    He knows this..what he's saying is, for the people calling this fake, how could this be faked? If it wasn't reading it's paw, it would have you slide to unlock.
