Jul 27 2007Levitating Desktop Globes

levitating-globes.jpg

Who knew there was such a big market for levitating globes? This one isn't nearly as cool though since it needs a top and bottom magnet.

A magnetic field sensor continually measures the height at which the globes are suspended. This sensor feeds that data into a micro computer in the base of the unit. This computer then calibrates the electronic magnets at the top of the frame based on the distance between the globes and the top magnet to keep the globes correctly positioned.

There's a 4" and 8" version which sell for $39.99 and $74.99 respectively. Or a 443,520" version which I'm selling for $1 million. It floats in space and circles the sun and doesn't even need a stupid magnet.

Again, not a Death Star....

Uhmm, I don't know much about it but I think Earth do needs magnet(ic fields). Or it is a magnet itself OR WHATEVER, OK????

This is so obviously photoshopped.
This is obvously a fake with two pictures merged together.
There's no such thing as this because we would have heard about it on the news or the newspapers.
I can't believe you were taken in by this.

Apparently the head geelologist here thinks the earth is only 7 miles in diameter.

make that geekologist...

isn't it supposed to be tilted?

I had actually had this exact model, they are annoying as hell! There is actually a cord that you have to plug into an outlet, which makes this a deceiving picture. When it is plugged up it makes a super annoying buzzing sound for the electro magnet. I had to return it.

This is SORCERY.....(points finger at computer) WITCHES!!!!

Oh good old 7 mile earth.

I think 502,064,640" is the correct size of the earth in inches.

I would like to see a picture with this 443,520" version.

Do you have any other verson between 8" and 443,520" ??

That comment in which you offered a 443+ thousand " Globe doesn't match the high quality of this site. Let me ask you this, how many people work on the site? What would you charge me for a site with this much quality. My company is a Wholesale Tobacco Distributorship. Thank you, Larry.
