Hacking Video Screens In Times Square

Is it possible to hack the video screens in the world famous Times Square? This video seems to show some guys hacking several video screens with an iPhone and wireless transmitter.

Is it real/fake? We’re kinda leaning towards this being a clever special effects prank!

From the hacker:

‘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.’

Update March 17, 2011

Just as we suspected, the Times Square iPhone hack was actually a clever plug for a new movie
