The MOVA Blue Ocean Relief Map 4.5-inch Rotating Globe is a beautiful addition to any desktop. It rotates silently upon a stylish three pronged acrylic stand, but can be used with any stand while still retaining its elegance.

How it preserves its quiet splendor comes from the fact that a clear liquid rests between two layers that allows it to rotate without creating friction between the two surfaces. The fluid itself is safe and is used to help magnify the land masses of the globe, helping to better distinguish between the features on the map. This sphere also requires no outside power source since it uses ambient light and the Earth's own magnetic fields to sustain its rotation.

Advanced solar cells within the inner globe use the ambient light within the room as well as a magnetic function to help establish a fully functional rotation that is very similar to the Earth's own revolution. The continental colors used are true to the regions climates showing areas that range from desert to lush forests as well as the effervescent blue oceans. The MOVA Blue Ocean Relief Map 4.5-inch Rotating Globe stands 7.25-inch tall when supported by its acrylic base.

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.

Not easily impressed. October 6, 2016
Reviewer: Larry Steimle from Arcadia, CA United States  
I worked as an optical engineer for NASA JPL and have seen some rather remarkable instruments from 1980 to the present.  After having this MOVA globe for about a month now I find it continually fascinating and satisfying.  The workmanship is flawless as is the design...as much as is visible.  A thing of beauty.  I'm going to order another just like it for a friend.

This is, BY FAR, the very coolest globe! December 27, 2015
Reviewer: Tom Mautner from Sebastopol, CA United States  
Only a small amount of light is required to set this globe in motion. The brighter the light source, the faster the globe rotates. I love it!
