MOVA Globes

MOVA globes are simply some of the most technologically advanced and aesthetically pleasing globes on the market today. Also popularly known as the "MOVA spinning globe," these beauties bring together superior technology with a simple yet stunning design for world globes that are completely unique and one-of-a-kind.

MOVA globes use the power of ambient light in conjunction with a layer of safe fluid in between two of the globe's layers to give the sphere a natural rotation that simulates the very rotation of our Earth. They provide the appearance of magically "floating" and gently moving, adding decorative appeal and a "wow" factor to any coffee table, office desk, or end table. Perhaps most impressively, MOVA's globes require absolutely no power source to operate! Each globe stands on a crystal clear acrylic base that allows the sphere to rotate smoothly and efficiently without batteries or power cords. The technology is as simple as it is innovative - a difficult and winning combination to achieve.

MOVA Globes' unique spheres are smaller than traditional desktop globes, making them an ideal fit for small spaces such as a tight workstation, a bookshelf, or a small table. We offer one of the best selection of MOVA globes available anywhere, with a style, size and color for any decorating aesthetic. Choose from classic blue oceans to sleek black, featuring traditional world geography, a terrestrial view with cloud cover, a beautiful and symbolic version of the Heart Sutra, or even a globe of Jupiter! There's something here for everyone with these innovative pieces of art. Order your MOVA globe today for free shipping on one of your new favorite treasures!

About the MOVA Globes

How the MOVA Globe Works

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.

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. They appear 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.
