Philip Bendall has owned the SEGWAY number plate in New Zealand since 2004. He wasn’t the first to register it, however. In 2003 an enterprising individual was quick off the mark, buying the rights to this personalised plate and knowing full well that sooner or later someone else would really want it. He was right!
Last week we posted the latest in a series of images where the Segway PT is depicted in pop-culture. Here is another, based on Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream. There are four original versions of this painting, created between 1893 and 1910. On 4 May 2010, one of these sold for US$120 million, setting a new record for the amount paid for a single painting.
