Times Square Billboards Hijacked via iPhone

This video could very well be fake, but it looks so real that we’ll let you decide for yourself. A man rigged his iPhone with a video transmitter/repeater able to hijack video billboards around Times Square. While the man on the video does not give any details about the technology used to hack the billboards, it would appear that the device is either able to hack into the video feeds going to the billboards, or jam the billboards’ video boards, to replace the content of their video buffers in a real time fashion. Regardless, the result is nothing short of impressive, and intriguing, to say the least. From small billboards, to giant screens across Times Square, nothing seems to be immune to the hack.
