We’ve already seen this before where some guy with some piece of tech uses his iPhone 4 to control the screens in Times Square. It was cool at first, but then it was agreed that the video was fake.
We now have another contender.
Adi Isakovic,Â a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Toronto, reportedly built a real hack to stream live video,Â text messagesÂ and other content from his iPhone 4 onto the large video screen in Times Square.
On Tuesday night, Adi managed to hack the 5,000-square-foot screen and projected images of his honeymoon and miniature French poodle from his iPhone 4. Unlike the previous one, Isakovicâ€™s video is real.
So the demonstration seems legitimate. If you’re wondering how the hack works, here is a brief explanation that doesn’t really tell you much about the technical side:
Adi Isakovic has been working on the technology with his own start-upÂ TubeMote with his wife, Tania Nardandrea-Isakovic. The company intends to allow people to use their phones as universal remotes, controlling not only their televisions and home security systems, but also public screens in elevators, on stadium scoreboards and, of course, in Times Square.
It seems that this is real, based on the fact it’s being turned into a business, but considering the first guy that attempted this was a hoax, it’s difficult to choose what to believe!
