Levitating Desktop World Globes

These electromagnetic suspended globes are actually high-tech instruments. 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.

All in the blink of an eye! So not only do these look great on your desktop levitating in thin air, they are also technology marvels!
