Globes don't have to be just educational or reference tools - they can also
be gorgeous works of art that both captivate and enthrall. The Mova 4.5" Satellite
View Natural Earth World Globe does just that!
The globe rotates at a perfect point of balance between gravitational forces
and the buoyancy of surrounding fluids, powered by only the Earth's magnetic
field and ambient light. Designed to move at a perfectly quiet and peaceful
pace, the Mova 4.5" Satellite View Natural Earth World Globe is simply stunning.
You'll love the uniquely bold look of the sphere, from the stark, vibrant green
landmasses to the infinitely deep, jet black oceans.
A clear, durable acrylic stand elevates this beautiful, one of a kind globe
7.25" from the base, so it's a perfect fit for small spaces. Let this magnificent
little beauty grace the top of your desk, tables or bookshelf for a look that
you just won't find anywhere else! If you've been looking for a globe that stands
out above the rest, this is the sphere for you.
With no batteries, no cords and striking, pristine mapping, this world globe
is a perfect representation of simplicity and beauty.
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.
