Pockethound: The Device to Catch Cheating

By G+ Author: Jacquelyn Tanner.


The days of using mobile phones to cheat in exams could be over.

Berkeley Varitronics Systems have released the PocketHound, a portable cellphone detector that will vibrate and light up each time there is a nearby transmission from a mobile phone.


Roughly the same size and weight as a deck of cards the PocketHound has a battery life of 2 hours, costs $500 and features an integrated multiband antenna hidden under the label.

BVS was a Platinum Winner of the 2013 Government Security Awards and was awarded Best of What’s New 2012 by Popular Science for the PocketHound.
