Presenting the Globus, a stylized model of Earth with two sets of decorative continents, a rotating mechanism, and curious little extras that make the model even more interesting. The main module of the model is comprised of two parts: the globe and the platform with the mechanism. The sphere of the globe sits on an axle inclined along the same angle as the axis of the Earth. Like most Ugears models, the Globus is animated by means of a rubber-band motor. A lever in the base pulled once clockwise all the way willfully wind up the mechanism. As soon as the lever is released, the gears begin their work.   The Globus is easy enough to assemble and very interesting to observe in motion. The unique mechanism and original design make it a clever gift and the perfect decoration for any home or office.
