The MOVA 4.5 Inch Silver Rotating Globe is one of a kind! The globe's design is sharp and futuristic; both the oceans and landmasses are colored in a fashionable silver shade. Country boundaries stand out in their piercing red coloring, while city names and ocean titles are presented in a handsome black text. A thin gold grid covers the spinning globe, delineating longitude and latitude. The rotating globe's landmasses also have detailed shading to illustrate topographical information. The world's continents are presented in a lighter color than the oceans' silver hue, slightly differentiating them.
The MOVA globe's forward thinking look is matched by its advanced technology. Batteries and power cords are not required for this spinning globe. Running on solar energy, this model revolves on its own. Both artificial and natural light can be converted into energy to make this world globe revolve. The MOVA 4.5 Inch Silver Rotating Globe reaches 7 inches tall on its three pronged acrylic stand. To match the stylish design of the globe, consider choosing from the additional five wooden stands, two Zen garden bases and two elegant crystal stands. All options can be seen in the images above, 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.
