The MOVA globe rotates
peacefully and silently using only the energy of room light
and the force of the earth’s magnetic field.
MOVA Motion Within: 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 optical properties of the outer shell 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. The MOVA globe appears 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.
