Type: Self Revolving 4.5" Blue Ocean Relief Globe
Stand: 3-Prong Clear Acrylic
Features: No Batteries\Power Cord - Powered by Ambient Light
Size: 7.25"H x 4.5"W x 4.5"D
The Mova Blue Ocean Relief Map 4.5" Rotating Globe is a beautiful addition
to any desktop. It rotates silently upon a stylish three pronged acrylic stand,
but can be used with any stand while still retaining its elegance.
How it preserves its quiet splendor comes from the fact that a clear liquid
rests between two layers that allows it to rotate without creating friction
between the two surfaces. The fluid itself is safe and is used to help magnify
the land masses of the globe, helping to better distinguish between the features
on the map. This sphere also requires no outside power source since it uses
ambient light and the Earth's own magnetic fields to sustain its rotation.
Advanced solar cells within the inner globe use the ambient light within the
room as well as a magnetic function to help establish a fully functional rotation
that is very similar to the Earth's own revolution. The continental colors used
are true to the regions climates showing areas that range from desert to lush
forests as well as the effervescent blue oceans. The Mova Blue Ocean Relief
Map 4.5" Rotating Globe stands 7.25" tall when supported by its acrylic base.
About the Mova Globe
The world's most advanced globe, the MOVA globe rotates silently and is inspired
by the earth itself. It requires no power cords or batteries, only the natural
light of your home or office. The three-fingered acrylic base is included with
every MOVA globe.
How the Mova Globe Works
The MOVA globe rotates peacefully and silently using only the energy of room
light and the force of the earth's magnetic field. This is possible because
the MOVA globe is actually an inner globe that rotates and is contained within
an outer shell made of very clear acrylic that does not rotate. The thin space
between the inner globe and outer shell is filled with a safe, perfectly clear
fluid that buoyantly supports the inner globe completely out of contact with
the outer shell. This inner globe, floating and turning in a virtually friction-free
environment and energized by light, is analogous to the earth itself. The MOVA
globe is being brought to market at a time when people everywhere will understand
and appreciate this analogy.
The optical properties of the outer sell and fluid are carefully chosen so
that the graphic features on the surface of the inner globe are magnified and
appear to be on the outer surface of the outer shell. This means that the outer
shell actually appears to move.
The MOVA globe can rest on an attractive three fingered stand that is provided,
or on just about any other kind of stand that can be chosen to complement it's
graphic design. The MOVA globe appears to rotate in spite of resting on the
stand, in quiet defiance of commonly held ideas about the laws of friction.
A carefully designed, and highly efficient drive mechanism within the inner
globe drives the rotation even in room light. Energy for the drive is provided
by very advanced solar cells within the inner globe, illuminated by light passing
through the graphic on the globe. The drive includes a magnetic element that
reacts with the earth's magnetic field, much as a common compass does, to provide
torque to drive the globe.
All of these elements of the MOVA globe cooperate to create a beautiful, magical
object that provides a meditative point of focus to any room.
