shocklances = rifles, guns, what have you, probably of a more futuristic type.

 

jumpers = some kind of hover craft, probably like a hovering motorcycle.

 

sho-wings = airplanes, futuristic flying transportation.

The Big White Book says:

 

"...[the vehicles] used a type of antigravity technology. ... Jo-cars had a very efficient four-wheel design or in the floater version, a type of gravitational hovercraft technology.  Both jumpers and hoverflies could float suspended above the ground at various distances."

 

Jo-cars seem to be regular cars, and also hovercraft cars. 

Hoverflies seem to be helicopters.

 

The sho-wing was "an airborne vehicle available in several types and sizes. ... The sho-wing designs were derived from a basic delta-wing pattern..."

 

Sho-wings are airplanes.

 

"Shocklances and other tools for long-distance destrucion were built along with suitable body armor."

 

I think a shocklance must be similar to a stun-gun.

 

Hope that helps.

We see the pistol version of a shocklance in KoD-31-The House on Full Moon Street.

 

It is a weapon which gives a discharge of electricty which can be set to stun or kill. Unlike a stungun it can do so over distance without direct contact. The Seanchan have a weave that has the same effect, likely used in capturing damane given it renders the victim unable to channel.
