    Well Well, would love to see that hover-rangie thingie work.

    What did catch my attention was the video on the right bottom, where the 70+ year old lady get a bit of a shock for not obeying the Police Man who stands about twice her hight. Hmmmmm, Not to sure about that one.
    In the beginning there was the Cube; I know where is came from and it has the power to create Hover life. But with great power comes great Fun.

    There was a good piece on the 1830 BBC1 South Today News program tracing the history and featuring John Gifford.

    Well done John.

    Cheers
