A geographic conversation piece and intriguing magnetism demonstration in one, this unusual globe makes more than heads spin. An electromagnet and computerized sensor hidden in its display stand cause it to levitate motionlessly in the air. Give it a whirl or pass your hand around it without disturbing its magnetic field.

    This item is displayed on a table along with other items of this nature.
    I was intrigued by this product. It is well made and sturdy. I was expecting more plastic. The stand is metal, which I was pleasantly surprised about. The globes background, the ocean, color is a dark blue, which in my opinion is rather mysterious which I like.
    All in all a great product.

      Looks amazing on the book shelf or your office desk. Was hoping it would keep rotating but now I don't mind so much since I go up to it everyday and give it a twirl. Love it!

                    To bad that the purchasing dept, of National Geographics did not check to see if it works before putting it on sale. At 230 volts 50Hz it works in Europe, Australia etc. but not the United States which uses 120 Volt 60Hz. A lot of people wiil be diaappointed when they open up their gifts and find their globes don't work.

                        This was a gift for my brother in Los Alamos, NM.
                        He is an Engineer at the Labs there, and really like his gift, for his birthday. I, was very pleased he enjoys it so much. Thank you.
