#Hacks

 
An artist wheeled 99 smartphones around in a wagon to create fake traffic jams on Google Maps

An artist pulled 99 smartphones around Berlin in a red wagon, tracking how the gadgets affected Google Maps' traffic interface. Wherever the phones went, Google Maps showed a traffic jam, displaying a red line and routing Maps users around the area. Google Maps determines traffic by pinging smartphones that use the app in order to predict the density of cars in a given area.
