This contemporary styled MOVA 6 Inch Cobalt Blue and Silver Rotating Globe radiates with its vibrant color scheme. The oceans are shaded a sumptuous blue color, which is set against the piercing silver of Earth's landmasses. The only other hues featured on this restrained color scheme are the black of the location text contrasting with silver continents, and the subtle gold grid outlining longitude and latitude. The divisions of the planet's countries are denoted with thin blue lines.
This glossy sphere rotates smoothly and effortlessly on MOVA's signature three pronged acrylic base. Only ambient light is needed to power the solar cells within the unit, making batteries and annoying power cords a thing of the past. Open up the model's box, place this stunning world globe on its stand, and watch its captivating motion begin autonomously. The eye catching colors will light up any room with its sharp style. This MOVA 6 Inch Cobalt Blue and Silver Rotating Globe is perched 9.5 inches tall atop its modern base. In addition to MOVA's signature stand, which comes with every model, there is also a clear crystal base and natural wood stand available for special order. Both tasteful stands can be seen in the above images and 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.
