Displays in New York’s Times Square have been hacked using an iPhone and some electronics.
Fake or real? Whatever it is, these two guys have fun using an iPhone 4 and a misterious electronic device to project their own images over the screens around New York City and the result is quite funny. Let’s take a look
The way it works is pretty simple: plug in my transmitter into the iPhone 4 and play back any video clip. You can play it through the iPod feature or through the camera roll. The transmitter instantly sends the video signal to the video repeater and the video repeater overrides any video screen that it’s being held next to. It doesn’t matter what shape or size the hacked screen is because the hack video will simply keep its correct dimensions and the rest of the hacked space will stay black.
