At home you can use your Tivo remote to fast forward through boring or annoying commercials, but if you happened to be walking through Columbus Circle in New York last week, you wouldn’t have been so lucky. A few Segways that had been retrofitted with large, vertically mounted plasma displays were being used to show advertisements for the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe. The writers at Chip Chick managed to snap a few shots of the Segways which featured special mounts for the plasma display, a portable DVD player and a couple of large batteries to keep all the added electronics running. There’s no word on whether or not a-32 inch flat screen display will become an official option for the Segway, but I’m sure it would be a popular accessory.
