Smartwatches Used To Cheat on Tests

Postby koimaster » May 13th 2016, 11:37am

And now, the dark side of smartwatches, as students at Rangsit University in Bangkok, Thailand, have been discovered using the devices as part of a scam to cheat on a medical school entrance exam. With all the benefits of connected technology and the ability to share information more easily – as well as the ever-impressive, endless ingenuity of students to avoid studying – we could have predicted such unscrupulous behavior.

The perpetrators were caught using camera-equipped glasses to photograph the tests and send the questions to an outside team, while other students taking the test were able to receive the answers in code on their smartwatches. The students were said to be paying as much as 800,000 THB (about US$23,000) for the answers, while those caught recording the test questions were being paid about 6,000 THB (US$170) for their role. Although only those few individuals were caught, around 3,000 students will need to retake the exam – the implicated students, of course, will not be allowed to apply again and legal action is underway. While the same method was used to deliver the information, the hardware used appears to be various makes of low-end smartwatches.
