The MOVA 4.5 Inch Copper and Black Rotating Globe features an attractive, acrylic sphere of copper-colored landforms set against a dark ocean hue. Black texts designating the country names lay across the landmasses, while copper writing is highlighted among the black seas. This world globe carries a distinct, contemporary flavor, with its stark color scheme and contrasting shades. It forgoes most city names in order to keep to its restrained look. The text is written in a minimal, bold font that underscores this globe's modern edge.
Solar cells located inside this MOVA globe silently propel the glossy sphere at a smooth and steady pace, employing only natural or artificial light to produce movement. There is no need for batteries or bothersome power cords to make this world globe spin. Quietly resting on your desktop or bookshelf, the serenely revolving MOVA 4.5 Inch Copper and Black Rotating Globe will provide a peaceful respite from your day. Standing 7 inches on its three pronged acrylic base that comes with each model, one can also choose an additional stand from the selection of five wooden, two Zen garden and two crystal stands. All options are displayed in the pictures above and listed in the drop-down menu.
Red and black globe Review by Owen
Product's Overall Rating
The copper color is more red to me in real life. This is a really stylish globe. It reminds me of greek pottery, which is why I got it. A real pleasure watching this thing rotate on its own when exposed to light. (Posted on 1/2/2014)

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.
