Sleek silver metallic continents and colbalt blue
oceans bring a modern
aesthetic to this self-rotating globe. Political borders as well as major
cities are clearly labeled. The globe spins effortlessly atop a three column
solid acrylic base. No batteries or electrical cord are required as this
globe harnesses solar energy to power its internal drive mechanism.
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.
Globe Diameter: 4.5"
Shipping Weight: 4 lbs.

NOTE: Since the lighting and earth magnet
field conditions may vary greatly from one place to another, it may be
necessary to try different locations to place the Solar-Powered Spinning
Globe for its best performance.
WARNING: Do NOT place the Solar-Powered
Spinning Globe close to any device, equipment, appliance, utilities, or
object whose operation or performance may be affected by a DC magnetic
