This stylish world globe exemplifies the finest of MOVA's forward-thinking technology with the sleek design the company is known for. The MOVA 6 Inch Silver and Black Rotating Globe stands apart through its appealing color scheme. Forgoing the standard hues of a traditional map, this silver and black shaded globe adds a modern flair to any space. The silver landmasses shine when contrasted with the deep, slate ocean color. Location names are labeled in bold fonts, and feature the opposite color of their respective backgrounds.
The handsome design of this 6 inch solar globe radiates when atop its three pronged clear acrylic base, making it 9.5 inches tall. On its stand, this spinning globe rotates effortlessly powered by the energy it produces from interior solar cells. Without help from batteries or power cords, this world globe only needs ambient light to revolve. All available light, both artificial and natural, will power this spinning globe's serene movements. Let yourself be fascinated by the MOVA 6 Inch Silver and Black Rotating Globe! The three pronged clear acrylic base comes with the solar globe itself, but there is also an elegant crystal stand and natural wood base available for purchase. All options are pictures in the images above, and can be selected in a 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.
