UGears Globus Wooden 3D Globe Model

Overview:
The Ugears Globus Wooden 3D Model is a stylized model of Earth with a set of decorative continents, a rotating mechanism, and curious little extras that make the model even more interesting. All details are of high-quality eco-friendly plywood and pre-cut with a precise laser. No glue or additional tools are required to assemble your Globus.

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. However, in this case, the motor uses a different type of winding method. A lever in the base pulled once clock-wise all the way, winding-up the mechanism. As soon as the lever is released, the gears begin their work. To slow down the spinning of the Earth sphere, the Globus employs a pendulum reduction mechanism. But if you want it to rotate even slower, you can manually turn the Globus and watch the continents float slowly by.

In addition to the main module, the model comes with two interchangeable extra-modules: the Shuttle and the Sputnik. Choose which satellite you want to circle your Globus today and set it on the special support. The satellites are also powered by the rubber-band motor and connect to the main module via the planetary gearing. With this connection, the satellites rotate almost twice as fast as the globe and make almost two full orbits in one pull of a winding lever.

The model is easy enough to assemble and very interesting to observe in motion. Unique mechanism and iconic design – all the signature features that make Ugears models a clever gift and the perfect decoration for any home or office.

The Globus from Ugears is the model you will want to return to again and again. Take your Globus from the shelf and dream about all those amazing places you plan to visit one day.
