How to Hack Times Square With an iPhone 4

by Christopher Paul on March 14, 2011

YouTube user BiTcrash44 created a device which can hack any video screen to have it show whatever he’s playing on his iPhone 4. To test and prove his device, he went to Times Square in New York City where there are countless video screens. He describes how this works in the video and on the YouTube page:

the way it works is pretty simple: plug in my transmitter into the headphone minijack of an 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.

Pretty cool, if you ask me.
