$169.99

Solar Powered Spinning Globe

This self-rotating physical globe features topographical shaded relief landmasses as well as ocean bathymetric detail; ocean currents are also displayed. Not only is this colorful physical globe rich in geological and oceanic detail, but it also features political boundaries outlined as well as labeling of countries and major cities.

No batteries or electrical cord are required as this globe harnesses solar energy to power its internal drive mechanism. When exposed to the proper light source this globe rotates automatically creating a mesmerizing effect that’s sure to grab anyone’s attention.

Solar powered rotation depends on light and the magnetic energy of the earth to keep it spinning effortlessly. Advanced solar cells embedded inside the globe provide power to its rotational drive even under normal indoor light sources. The highly efficient drive mechanism incorporates a magnetic element that reacts to the Earth’s magnetic field in a similar manner to a compass, providing torque to drive the globe.
Just as the earth revolves in response to natural energies such as light, magnetic fields and gravity, so does this exceptional globe, turning twice a minute under full light, slowing a bit in dimmer light, “resting” in darkness.

Globe consists of an outer acrylic shell and an inner acrylic shell, containing non-toxic liquid. Acrylic base.

Available in either an 4.5″ or 8.5″ diameter.
