So I was watching the movie "Dune" last night and I noticed the little hover lights that followed them around in some of the scenes. And I thought that people would probably have that in the future in the Traveller Universe. So I made one. It morphed somewhat into a multi-use device. Take a look.

Sorry about the formating, it seems the blog does not keep tabs from Office. I tried toline them up as well as I could. If anyone has some ideas on or how the blog can be made to keep formating, let me know. Well I'm ediitng it and I posted it and it was all messed up. Sigh. So I guess I will have to modify the basic layout of the usual vehicle block.

I made a SkyBoard in TNE using FF&S a long time ago. Basically a one (or two) person grav flyer in the shape/size of a smallish surfboard. Solar power/charger, short battery, onboard storage.
