The MOVA 8.5-inch Blue Ocean Relief Map Rotating Globe is truly a magnificent display piece. By carefully placing a clear and perfectly safe fluid between two layers, it allows for a dynamic rotation of the sphere, accurately mimicking the revolution of the Earth.

When this globe was designed, the properties of both the outer shell and the fluids were taken into careful consideration so that the surface features appear to be magnified and thus easier to see. This alluring globe also features relief pattern mapping and bright vibrant colors that add depth and beauty to an already wondrous piece. One of this globe's more outstanding features is the vibrant blue oceans that are used in combination with the sleek colors of the continents and countries, truly bringing this remarkable piece to life.

The globe is powered by ambient light in the room itself as well as the magnetic fields of the earth, so it requires no power source to operate. This elegant sphere is absolutely silent since it is supported by fluid and creates no friction between the two surfaces. The MOVA 8.5-inch Blue Ocean Relief Map Rotating Globe is supported by a sleek, crystal clear acrylic base and stands approximately 12-inch tall.

About the MOVA Globe

The world's most advanced globe, the MOVA globe rotates silently and is inspired by the earth itself. It requires no power cords or batteries, only the natural light of your home or office. The three-fingered acrylic base is included with every MOVA globe.

How the MOVA Globe Works

The MOVA globe rotates peacefully and silently using only the energy of room light and the force of the earth's magnetic field. This is possible because the MOVA globe is actually an inner globe that rotates and is contained within an outer shell made of very clear acrylic that does not rotate. The thin space between the inner globe and outer shell is filled with a safe, perfectly clear fluid that buoyantly supports the inner globe completely out of contact with the outer shell. This inner globe, floating and turning in a virtually friction-free environment and energized by light, is analogous to the earth itself. The MOVA globe is being brought to market at a time when people everywhere will understand and appreciate this analogy.

The optical properties of the outer sell and fluid are carefully chosen so that the graphic features on the surface of the inner globe are magnified and appear to be on the outer surface of the outer shell. This means that the outer shell actually appears to move.

The MOVA globe can rest on an attractive three fingered stand that is provided, or on just about any other kind of stand that can be chosen to complement it's graphic design. The MOVA globe appears to rotate in spite of resting on the stand, in quiet defiance of commonly held ideas about the laws of friction.

A carefully designed, and highly efficient drive mechanism within the inner globe drives the rotation even in room light. Energy for the drive is provided by very advanced solar cells within the inner globe, illuminated by light passing through the graphic on the globe. The drive includes a magnetic element that reacts with the earth's magnetic field, much as a common compass does, to provide torque to drive the globe.

All of these elements of the MOVA globe cooperate to create a beautiful, magical object that provides a meditative point of focus to any room.

Mova Globe Review January 2, 2015
Reviewer: Ron Remsburg from Malibu, CA United States  
I am far beyond completely satisfied with the product and your service. What is lacking is a diagram/explanation of the operations of the globe motion. What I have been able to pick up is a vague reference to earth's magnetic field and a photovoltaic principle. I have taught physics and there is little cause-effect explanation. There might be some insights here for my students, if you would be so kind to share them. I would rather not order another globe and "take it apart" to try to answer my cause-effect; motion-energy question. :)

Couldn't Be More Delighted! March 11, 2010
Reviewer: John from Naples, Florida  
For geographic, educational purposes, borderline useless.  I mean, who wants to walk in a circle while discussing the topography of Montana?  But as a conversation piece and just as something really, really cool to own... absolutely UNBEATABLE!  Much, much cooler than I ever expected.  Delight factor among people who first see it: 100%.  Thank you.
