Was looking at the Securitron (http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Securitron) from the new Fallout New Vegas game and I king of like those TVs they have built into them and I'm wondering what sort of cool stuff you could pull off with an enchanted TV/Magic Mirror/Crystal Ball/Painting thing that's built into a golem or warforged.

1). Scrying mirror - The golem can scry on other places or people and display the image on its screen. Useful if you can order it to repeatedly search for various things and it only alerts you if its found something. Might have a recording feature.

2). News broadcasting - The golems job is to spread news throuout the population and does this by traveling the streets and broadcasting the news to those who will listen. Presumably richer folks have their own video screens but the golems are build to announce to the public and prevent vandalism (by punching vandals in the face).

3). Brainwashing - Similar to the News Broadcasting but incorporates a way to sway the minds of the population. Either actual enchantment magic or recordings of high-charisma bardic bluff checks (the news bard takes twenty on his bluff check and records the best attempt to spread to the population).

4). Exploration and Mapping - The golem explores the land and takes pictures of what it sees, then it can return to its master and play back images of people or places so they can be scryed on or teleported to later.

Recording your adventuring exploits and putting them on network TV?

Use it to draw your combat-guitar out of your forehead so that you can save the planet from the giant baseball throwing comet.

Show porn/sports to distract all males of 13 and over. While they are dealt with by female counterparts rob everything you can get your hands on.

Not a use, but...

I'd totally like to see a homebrewed "TV Golem" (Scrying Golem?)
