In the future, everything glows, and that includes the fingerprints
left behind at the scene of future crimes.
Despite the fact that fingerprints are just about everywhere, they are notoriously hard to see. Tranditional methods of picking them out usually involve some sort of dust or powder, and can sometimes destroy the precious prints in the process of pointing them out. With a process called Electrochemiluminescence, researchers have been able to come up with a new way to see prints: coating them in chemicals and electrifying them until they glow.
