Levitating Desktop Globe

Levitating Desktop Globe

Even during early childhood, globes speak to every guy's desire to rule the planet. Now you can actually see the world the way it was meant to be seen with the Levitating Desktop Globe ($40). It employs an electromagnet and a computerized sensor to work its levitating magic, allowing you to pass your hand above or below the globe with no stoppage in floating.

  • Verbarius Clock

    We don't know why it took so damn long to get a clock that answers the simple question "What time is it?" The Verbarius Clock ($160; Nov 2007) does simply that, utilizing graphic LCD screens behind tinted glass to give the answer in simple terms, such as "Fifteen minutes to five" and "Seven nineteen p.m." Multiple languages are pre-installed on the clock, and you can upload new languages from a PC. An elegant, simple time-telling solution. [Thanks, Marshall]
