Ever wondered what it would be like to hack things with a smartphone in real life, just like Aiden Pearce does in Watch_Dogs?

Well, Ubisoft has made an advert showing exactly that, using unsuspecting customers of a fake cell phone shop to turn lights on and off, unlock expensive cars, make ATMs spew cash and more, using a “special application” loaded onto their phones by the super-helpful store clerk.

To me, it’s the faces of the people whose minds have just been blown that make it so fantastic. The very idea of an app that can do all that also tickles my inner geek to no end.

Watch it below, and try not to get too excited that there’s just over a week to wait before the game is finally out.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
