•Low-light solar cell technology -- The solar cells are placed inside the globe and behind the globe graphics.
•Use of the earth’s magnetic field to produce countertourque – For the MOVA globes’ motor to get the globe started turning, and to keep it turning, the motor needs a source of countertorque. The MOVA globe uses the earth’s magnetic field to push against. Think of the needle in a compass. The motor is, in effect, pushing against the needle, which is held stationary by the earth’s magnetic field.
