A guy carted 99 phones around to create traffic jams on Google Maps
https://www.androidauthority.com/google-maps-hack-1079604/?fbclid=IwAR2RcucJmF6ly3o10FwBC44H8PeJFqU1P7do4TRDF7dmfg9O6w_vXxDcrXI

artist Simon Weckert says that each of the 99 smartphones in the wagon had their own connected SIM card and each one was actively using Maps for navigation. He discovered that if the wagon stopped moving, Maps would not show a traffic jam, so the wagon had to consistently be in motion for a jam to get registered.

Additionally, if a vehicle drove by the wagon at a normal speed, Maps would also register traffic as normal. It was only when the wagon was in motion and the street was empty that a traffic jam would show on Google Maps.

Google had this to say in response to the “hack”  to register false traffic jams:

"Whether via car or cart or camel, we love seeing creative uses of Google Maps as it helps us make maps work better over time."

Makes me wonder how often people try to return condoms.

The only difficult bit is re-rolling them and getting them back into the packets.
