We’ve been waiting for these to come in, and now they are here. We are talking about the MOVA Solar Powered Spinning Globes!
These globes sit on their base and with just a little bit of light will spin. If you pick up the globe it will still spin! Put it on the table and it continues to spin! There is no cord, no batteries, and really odd is no obvious solar cells.
The secret is that the the globe is actually immersed in a liquid that in turn is inside a clear acrylic globe. There are solar panels located behind the printed image of the globe. Since the globe only needs a little bit of light to runt he drive mechanism this works out fine. Let;s take a look at a video of the globe in action:
The MOVA globes are a great desktop toy. and don’t just come as a globe. We also have ones that are the surface of the Moon
And also one that is the Planet Jupiter
There are more of these MOVA globes available and we will be adding more very soon. Keep an eye out on this blog for more Solar Spinning Globes.
