When you first eyed the magical movement of MOVA Globes, we’re pretty certain that you were mesmerized, confused, and amazed all at the same time. Our solar-powered products tend to draw this kind of reaction regardless of age or interests. Over the years, we’ve been thrilled to receive great feedback from people of all backgrounds, hobbies and design styles. But, how do they appeal to such a wide audience? Let’s delve into the mind of tech geeks, décor enthusiasts, astronomy buffs, and kids:
With new technologies and new gadgets seemingly invented every second of the day, it’s no surprise that the natural movement of our products intrigues the many scientists, physicists, and technology-minded professionals that come across MOVA’s path. Inside each MOVA Creation is a complex mixture of patented technologies that serve as the foundation for our company. Motion mechanism and battery-free operation may seem like simple terms at first; however, the precise engineering required to build the mechanism, let alone manufacture the entire product, is in an advanced world of its own. MOVA Inventor Bill French, a physicist by trade and inspired by our planet, created these rotating spheres to simulate perpetual motion (indefinite motion without an energy source), a task in itself that is technically unachievable. Once a tech geek gets his or her hands on our MOVA Globes, the quest to determine the exact inner workings begins.
“Newton’s Cradle may win the prize for simplicity, but the MOVA globe is the champ when it comes to ingenious engineering.” – Jason England, writing for Cosmos Magazine.

MOVA Globes were invented with the Earth in mind, to mimic the serenity and beauty of our planet’s continuous movement. As human beings continue to explore our solar system and discover out-of-this-world things, literally, the notion that Earth is a tiny speck in the scope of the entire galaxy will remain true. Over the years, our designs have continued to expand, and in particular, the MOVA Space Collection has garnered enormous praise. Astronomy buffs marvel at the continuous motion of the stunning Jupiter MOVA Globe and the allure of the Constellations design. Even our Satellite Views of Earth provide inspiration to those who constantly wonder about what’s out there in space. Once the solar system fanatic acquires one globe, it’s hard to resist collecting the entire line of planets, moons, and stars.
“Not only do these globes look the part but they have proven to be an excellent educational tool as well in my work as an astronomy educator.” –David Reneke, amateur astronomer and lecturer
“And as a cheaper alternative to a giant telescope, this tiny desktop-sized version of Jupiter lets you stare in awe at the gas giant when you probably should be working.” – Andrew Liszewski, Gizmodo.com
*“It is surprising how tranquil [the Moon MOVA Globe] is to have this next to my armchair. I was excited to see it in the shop I purchased it from, a museum shop. I love astronomy and this is perfect for me.” –David, review left on movainternational.com
High quality. Eco-friendly. Unique. Those are a few of the words that describe today’s trends in décor, whether in a modern home or office. Built from high-quality materials, handmade with care, and operated from only ambient light, MOVA Creations represent the finest in décor and design that suits today’s modernizing world. We’ve run into countless home decorators and interior designers that are astounded by the clean, refined, and sophisticated qualities of our products, not to mention the breathtaking nature of our designs, including the award-winning Cassini Terrestrial MOVA Globe. The MOVA Globe stands out in any room with its silent but powerful rotation, leaving visitors in awe and owners in never-ending amazement. Additionally, our selection of wood and crystal bases allows for the perfect globe+base combination to fit any style.
“Everyone loves the soothing movement of the globes. So many items in our homes and offices are static. The MOVA Globes are alive!” –Barbara K.
“These are so amazing! I could watch one of these for hours and find something new every time!” – Jordan Sahly, comment on movainternational.com
Kids and Students
As our creations continue to revolutionize the next generation of décor, design, and technology, we hope that our products will inspire the next generation of youth. Kids today are accustomed to seeing the stationary desk globe in the classroom. However, the reactions we get when kids and students see our self-rotating globes are nothing short of satisfying. MOVA Globes can be used as fantastic educational tools for subjects like solar energy, astronomy, physics, and more. Kids of all ages cannot believe that the globes are turning on their own, and are practically speechless when the spheres are rotating in the palms of their hands.
“The MOVA globe bridges the traditional and innovative, and has the power to move not only the earth, but the minds of those who view it!” – Wendy Marshall, Director of Education at ExplorOcean
“It [Constellation MOVA Globe] would make a unique conversation piece and excellent educational tool.” – Sherri Foster, comment on movainternational.com
