iPhone Hack can Control Time Square Video Walls?

If real, then it is pretty cool.

A cool video appeared that shows how the video screens on Time Square in NYC get hijacked with an iPhone. The video shows an iPhone connected to a DIY circuit board and a video repeater unit. When the video repeater is held close to a video screen it displays the video played back on the iPhone.

This hack sounds to good to be true. The video is most likely an excellent fake. Why would all video walls would have a wireless receiver? Anyway. The best part of the video is when the "hacker" (BITcrash44) buys a big red balloon, connects the transmitter and lets it fly up to one of the big video screens.

Watch the fantasy iPhone hacker video below.
