Levitating Globes

This globe floats in space...just like the Earth! You can pass your hand above, below and around the globe due to its electro-magnetic levitating technology. Suspended in the air, Stellanova globes are an impressive high-tech instrument.

A magnetic field sensor constantly measures the height at which the globe is suspended. It feeds that data into a microcomputer in the base of the unit. The microcomputer calibrates the electronic magnets at the top of the frame based on the distance between the globe and the top magnet to keep the globe correctly positioned. All in the blink of an eye!

These globes must be plugged into an electrical outlet to levitate. Each globe comes with an additional, permanent magnet in the base to hold the globe safely on the frame when the suspension mechanism is switched off.

When you initially get your globe and plug it in, it may take you a few minutes to correctly position the globe between the base and top magnets. You'll figure it out quickly enough and before you know it, you'll be able to set it up in just a few seconds every time. Once it's levitating, you can even spin it slightly and watch the globe rotate for extended periods of time.
