Touch-screen video devices will soon be popping up in some Maryland cabs.
A taxi company in Montgomery County, Maryland is the first in the Washington region to put interactive video screens in back seats.
Over the next year, an estimated 2-million people will hop into a cab with this man, who appears on a monitor. "Whether you're visitors or already live here, thanks for wathing, and stay tuned," says County Executive Isiah Leggett.
Okay, so Leggett isn't in the back seat. He's on a six-inch color monitor, introducing a series of public service announcements.
The monitors also read credit cards, securely, in three seconds flat.
