∞ Video: Hacker takes over Times Square video with an iPhone

I saw this video this morning and thought it was really interesting. I don’t know if it’s real, but it certainly looks good to me.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]A man apparently used a homemade transmitter plugged into his iPhone 4 to take over video screens around New York’s Times Square over the weekend. He used a video repeater to take over the screens.

“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,” the man says.

He said he chose Times Square because there are lots of video screens to test it with. At one point he buys a balloon and uses it to take over a screen high above the city.

Pretty cool if it can be done. If it’s fake, good job.
