The captivating rotation of MOVA 4.5 Inch Relief Blue-Ocean Gloss Rotating Globe calls to mind the relentless motion of Earth. The silent, smooth revolution of the spinning globe produces a peaceful effect, making it a great addition to your workplace or home. The spinning globe exhibits the natural properties of our planet with its relief map. The shaded relief displays the world's largest mountain ranges and deepest valleys, while the colors of this globe highlight the planet's varied surface. earth's major geographical locations, like countries and cities, are also labeled in red and black text.
Just like our planet, this MOVA globe rotates continuously. With the sphere measuring 4.5 inches in diameter, the entire piece stands 7 inches high when revolving upon its stand. Forget about batteries or a cord, MOVA's signature technology only requires available light to power its movements! Solar cell technology, coupled with the forces from Earth's magnetic field, make this globe come alive. The three-pronged stand comes with the purchase of the MOVA 4.5 Inch Relief Blue-Ocean Gloss Rotating Globe, but there are five alluring wooden bases, two crystal stands and two Zen garden bases available as well. All options are pictured in the images above and can be chosen 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.
