Title: Interface ring.....hoverboards n stuff
Post by: Skylar-Wa on April 23, 2010, 04:42:38 PM
how do you picture an interface ring? does it have a holographic screen? what color is it?
how do you picture a hoberboard? was it the same or different to the one in the Bogus to Bubbly book?
post your thoughts, pictures, videos.......etc.   ;D

i dunno why but i always pictured a hoverboard circular kind of like these pool toys called Skippys that i played with wen i was little
i think thats where i got the idea... they look like this...   http://www.toysplash.com/images/products/101641_L.jpg
but just the shape..not the design but for specials hoverboards i pictured it the same but just with a big fan at the bottom
and the interface ring i picture it like this..   http://shop.whateverittakes.org/shopimages/products/normal/Lemmy%20Kilminster%20-%20Ring%20S%20-%20Large.jpg    same size and thick/wideness just without the writing on it and i pictured it with a holographic screen coming out of it whenever they used it

i know its wierd its just those toys (ive played with them a lot when i was a kid) they skip across the water kinda hover/bounce so then wen i read uglies with them hoverboarding on the river i remembered those and yea thats how i picture them lol

Post by: lynda-wa on April 27, 2010, 01:32:59 PM
I've always pictured hoverboards as like a skateboard in shape but with magnetics instead of wheels and for the Special's boards, just a bit longer to accomodate fans in a circular opening. so yeah. Interface rings I always imagined like this ring i used to have, it was silver but a really wide band, except maybe black or gold instead.

I pictured hoverboards as kinda long, thin, and oval-shaped, maybe with stripes or something. Like a surfboard, except smaller, like Tyler-wa said. And interface rings?... Well, kind of what everyone else has been saying, a wide silver band. I always pictured them either silver or white.
Title: Re: Interface ring.....hoverboards n stuff

Okay I pictured hoverboards like that Manga-ish picture.
The interface ring, well it was just a ring.
That had computery stuff in it.
Title: Re: Interface ring.....hoverboards n stuff
Post by: smokiegirl1506 on June 01, 2010, 01:30:24 PM
I picture the hoverboard mostly round.. I can't think of a comparison right now.
The ring was thick and gold in my mind.

I imagined the hover boards as sort of a fatter smaller version of a boogie board. . . . Sort of like this

http://www.thebodyboardshop.com/shopping/images/boogie_board36.jpg

Then the ring sort of looked like this depending on whether or not you had it customized (:

Pluto is so a planet! Why do you believe the bogus scientists?
Title: Re: Interface ring.....hoverboards n stuff

because science is icy and without it there would BE no scifi

Well, you don't have to believe in the difference between "planet" and "dwarf planet".
Title: Re: Interface ring.....hoverboards n stuff
Post by: Mercy-la on June 06, 2010, 02:25:24 AM
It's because there are certain requirements that planets have to fit in order to be considered a planet and pluto didn't fit it. . . I think it has something do with it's orbit. ;l

I imagined the rings mostly what like you guys posted, but maybe in Gold and with a small circle on the underside that was the tracker type thing.

As for the hoverboard, I also imagined them as a smaller version of a surfboard. The Specials version i imagines a bit bigger with two lifting fans on the underside of the board; 1 on each end.

Mara-la

I've never saw someone named Allie that spelled their name like I did!! I had a friend who spelled her name Ali in Jr. High, and then my Sister-in-law spells her name Ally. That's cool that you knew someone who spelled their name like that!!

Anyway, so as I was reading more into Bogus to Bubbly, and looking at all the pics of the hoverboards, did anyone notice how much smaller the Specials board looked compared to the regular ones? Or was that just me having a complete brain-missing moment?
