I have always wanted to have a hoverboard, and it was Scott Westerfield and his Uglies series that made me fall in love with this idea. Just like the hoverboards in the books the bottom of this hover board has hoverstruts or magnetic hover pads on the bottom to lift it. Of all the hoverboards in his book this is most like the long distance hoverboard. The clips on the back can carry tools or any thing your Lego mini-figure will need. The light on the front is the indicator for how much magnetic 'lift' is getting to the hoverboard. These kinds of hoverboards lift at the snapping of your fingers and fly at 10 feet, then with a thumbs down they lower to the ground. They have actually developed a wii mod where you can use your balance pad and create a hover board where you can fly around google earth 10 feet in the air, and control it with the balance pad; just like a real hoverboard. The other hoverboards feature various shapes and colors, please let me know which you would like me to keep or further design.
