Check out this video that demonstrates how a hand cart filled phones can trick Google Maps into detecting a traffic jam.
The 'hack' was shared by Berlin-based artist Simon Weckert.
99 smartphones are transported in a handcart to generate virtual traffic jam in Google Maps. Through this activity, it is possible to turn a green street red which has an impact in the physical world by navigating cars on another route to avoid being stuck in traffic.
