One CSIRO scientist who had his house broken into saw a potential for scientific development out of the crime scene that unfolded in his home. Seeing how much the police still relied on fingerprinting, he went on to develop a ground-breaking new crime scene identification technique to help collect criminals' fingerprints. Rather than the outdated 'dusting' method that is ubiquitous in crime shows and murder mysteries, the new technique instead uses a liquid containing tiny crystals. Used on a surface, this liquid can make fingerprints stand out and glow under a UV light.
