Solar-Powered World Globe – Blue Ocean Political
This solar-powered globe rotates peacefully and silently using only the energy of room light and the force of the earth’s magnetic field. The rotating part is actually an inner globe contained within a very clear acrylic shell. The thin space within the outer globe and the inner shell is filled with a safe, clear fluid which minimizes friction.
The graphic features on the surface of the inner globe are magnified and appear to be on the outer surface, so that the whole seems to move on its three-fingered lucite stand. Within the solar-powered globe is a highly efficient drive mechanism which uses advanced solar cells and a magnetic element to provide torque to drive the globe. The globe will work in ordinary ambient room light and - despite its name - should be kept out of direct sunlight.
All of these elements work together to create a beautiful, magical object that provides a meditative point of focus to any room!
