So we have solar cells and magnets – that’s everything we need for MOVA Creations to rotate, right? If you’ve ever held a MOVA Globe in your hand, you’ll notice immediately that there are two parts, one clear sphere on the outside and the other with the graphic encased and pivoting in fluid. Each MOVA Creation contains fluid – in between the outer shell and inner globe for MOVA Globes and Minis, and levitating the globe for MOVA Cubes.
While solar cells and magnets supply the energy and force needed to turn the globe, the fluid is the “glue” that holds the illusion together. To make sense of the MOVA magic, we will need to discuss the role of fluids.
