The MOVA 6 Inch Political Blue-Ocean Rotating Globe is a stylish addition to any desktop. This beautiful model brings color and fluid motion to the room, making it an attractive complement to a tabletop, coffee table, night stand or bookshelf. Each nation on the map is brightly colored in this globe’s appealing design and contrasts with neighboring countries. Alongside the pastel colors of the continents is the pale blue shade of the ocean. This political map is an ideal model for the geographically curious individual.
With its 6 inch sphere, the entire model stands 9.5 inches high, including MOVA’s signature clear acrylic stand. Perched on its base, the Political Blue-Ocean Globe spins using solar cell technology. The unit only needs artificial or natural light to drive its smooth rotations. The solar cells within the model power its revolutions, making cords and batteries a thing of the past! The modern styled three-pronged base is included with every MOVA globe, but there are five other wooden stands also available for purchase. Additionally, a crystal and natural wood base are also available for the 6 inch world globe. All options are shown in the pictures above and can be selected 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.
