What else are fingerprints used for besides catching criminals and many more.

This is just a package with a brush, tape squares, fingerprint pages, cornstarch and instructions. You can see the "fingerprint" shape with the cornstarch but when you try to pick it up with the tape and put it on the sheet it will be either blank or white cornstarch dots. We weren't able to see anything despite multiple people trying, taking multiple peoples prints, using the supplied tape squares, using the clear tape recommendation for when you run out, and varying the amount of cornstarch. My 7 year old tired of it after 10 minutes of non-results. Save your money.
