You’ll need to see this floating globe to believe it. The hovering 3D map of the world is weird and wonderful. Impress your friends by having your room or office look not just smart, but also magical. No, this isn’t any Harry Potter wizardry -- it’s science!

This floating globe brings together geography and physics. To make this amazing flying map, high-powered magnets are in the globe and in its base. These magnets are similarly charged so that they repel each other. You can even spin the globe in mid air. The effect is unbelievably cool.  Just make sure when you buy this baby, that it’s far enough away from your computer because the high-powered magnets can effect your technology.
