University of Massachusetts lowell madness!

The university of Massachusetts Lowell appears to be encouraging students and staff to hack your pin number.  Yes stupid or what!  You'd think a world famous university would discourage it's students and staff from becoming criminals, but they appear to be doing the opposite!
Professor Xinwen Lu of the university has developed a program that worked with Google glass (google= we want all your data) to read your pin number from 3 meters away, and it'll work with other smart phone too.
The professor is going to show the system off at the Blackhat hackers convention.
Now why a reputable university would fund such research is questionable, you have to wonder their motives, personally if I was dean the professor would be looking for a new job tomorrow. 
After all even the suggestion the university is encouraging hacking is worrying, time for the FBI to get involved I think
