City Lights Globe shows how the Earth looks at night
March 14, 2010
Gizmag wouldn't normally advocate urban light pollution but there's no doubt the twinkling lights of the cities around the world at night create a pretty light show. The City Light Globe is a 6" revolving globe that shows you both Earth and all its named countries as seen during the day, and automatically illuminates the city lights around the world as seen from orbit as each country falls into night-time.
The globe is placed on a tilted base and will automatically begin revolving slowly giving a 360 degree show of the world by day and the world's lights at night. The base is 5.5" by 0.75", and weighs almost a kilogram. Its revolving mechanism is powered by a 110V adapter and it is recommended for children 14 years and older.
The City Light Globe currently retails for US$49 and is available to buy from xump.com.
