What You Get
Mova Globe - 4.5" Satellite Image Map Natural Earth. Globe measures 4.5 inches in diameter (11.43 cm). It includes a 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty for Material Defects and Craftsmanship.
How Does It Work?
The inner globe floats in an almost friction free environment, much like earth itself. This globe has the same average density as the fluid it floats in, so there is no force or contact between the inner globe at the north and south poles and the inside surface of the outer shell.

The rotation of the globe creates forces in the fluid that center the inner ball and prevent contact at the equator, so the inner globe is not actually touching the outer shell.

At these low speeds the fluid friction is very low. The energy to overcome the fluid friction is provided by room light that passes through the graphic design and is incident on very specialized solar cells within the globe. An electric current provided by the cells powers a drive mechanism designed to move at a very low speed and power.

The graphic on the inner globe is about 1/4 inch below the outer surface of the outer shell, but the optical qualities of the fluid and the outer shell magnify the inner globe and cause its surface to appear to be on the outside surface of the outer shell.

All-in-all, an inspiring and intriguing globe with a high quality design, built to last.
