Rotates silently on its own when exposed to ambient light! The MOVA globe is the first member of a new family of objects that come quietly to life when touched by light, without wires or batteries. The globe floats at a point of perfect balance between buoyant forces and gravitational forces, and slowly turns as it feels the force of the Earth’s magnetic field and the energy carried in light. Its perpetual, quiet motion brings a tranquil point of focus to a room. Add more light and watch the Earth spin faster, dim the setting and observe it slowing. It really is an amazing sight to see! The Mova globe works similarly to a compass in that the Earth’s magnetic field makes this work! Makes a great desk toy for the office or an interesting coffee table conversation starter! Globe is 4.5 inches in diameter (11.43 cm)

    I got a lot of good words about my globe. It’s spins only when there is bright light or at least medium sun light. It can spin even without pedestal, there is a liquid inside of it. I can confirm that it is purple when it get sun light, but it still looks very good. Now for durability: I had it for over a year it’s been dropped, shaken but it still works just fine.

    The product looks much better in person. The globe appears dull in the picture, but it is really encapsulated in glass. So, it is glossy/shiny, which I like. The globe inside the glass also spins beautifully. Try not to be entranced. The stand seemed small and odd at first, but once assembled (which is merely sliding three pegs into the base) and then the globe placed on top, it looked very nice. Although it is a small globe (which is understood from the advertised dimensions), I feel that the print is very defined and easy to read. I can easily see the names of countries on the globe. I would definitely recommend this product to others. It is a good conversation piece as well, so put it where others may enjoy it too.

    The globe is very handsome and adds a classy touch to a room or office. Everyone who has seen it has complimented its design and is intrigued by its turning without an electric or battery power source.

    The only knock I’d give it is that the seam located where the Equator would be is not perfect… South America on either side of the seam is lined up perfectly, but Africa is off slightly. It wasn’t enough for my boyfriend to allow me to go through the hassle of exchanging it, but given the price I was slightly disappointed in this flaw.
