    I dont think this possible since the iphone screen is not actually a scanner but a touch screen that reads touch impulses. It would be cool but I dont see it happening.

    Its not possible. No question about it. There were however some "slide to unlock" replacements that had a fingerprint icon, but they lack the functionality that youre looking for.

    Cool, but it would have to be a hardware mod.
