The MOVA 6 Inch Natural Earth Rotating Globe showcases the planet’s wild beauty. The desktop globe presents the earth as it appears from a satellite, without cloud cover obstructing its vivacious colors. The deep blue ocean shade accents the vivid yellows and greens from the planet’s landforms. The world globe also displays the bright whites of earth’ poles along with grey, three-dimensional shading that represents the steep mountain ranges.
The planet’s organic grace emanates from this decorative globe. Like the earth, the world globe rotates effortlessly and independently. The model’s interior solar cells absorb ambient light and convert it into a low energy that drives its 360 degree movement. MOVA’s cutting edge technology makes batteries and power cords completely unnecessary. This MOVA 6 Inch Natural Earth Rotating Globe reaches 9.5 inches tall atop the manufacturer’s three pronged acrylic base. Weighing only 6 pounds, this unit is easily moved to the perfect corner of your desktop, night stand, book shelf or coffee table. In addition to MOVA’s signature base, which comes with every model, there is also a handsome wood and stylish crystal base that is available for purchase. All options can be viewed in the above images and ordered from the drop down menu.

How the MOVA Globe Works?
The MOVA Rotating Globe uses solar energy and the magnetism of Earth to power its smooth rotations. The solar cells within the unit create the globe’s slow and quiet movements from available room light, which means that it does not require batteries or power cords. MOVA took inspiration from Earth’s movements when designing these innovative products.
The MOVA globe is made up of an inner sphere that spins, surrounded by an outer shell that does not move. Between the two spheres is a crystal clear liquid that supports the inner globe in a nearly frictionless environment. The perfectly safe liquid keeps the two globes from ever touching, even at its north and south poles. The graphics of the map are printed on the inner sphere. The liquid separating the two objects magnifies the map onto the transparent outer shell.
A highly advanced drive mechanism within the globe propels its movements, operating on very low power. The mechanism is powered by the device’s solar cells, which use both natural and artificial light from the surrounding environment to create electrical energy. As most ambient light is blocked by the sphere, the solar cells have been carefully designed to produce low electrical energy from minimal light.
Still, another element is needed for the inner globe to rotate, as it rests in a virtually frictionless liquid. Like a compass, MOVA globes use the Earth’s magnetic field to provide torque for the inner sphere to push against, resulting in its slow but sustained motion. The models will work on almost any base as long as it does not contain iron, which can block Earth’s magnetic field.
The sleek, contemporary design of the MOVA Rotating Globe, combined with its innovative craftsmanship, make it a serene and stylish addition to a room. With its peaceful motion, the MOVA globe is a silent object of wonder on any surface.
