The Planet Kinetic Mobile is an intriguing and fascinating battery operated desktop mobile that mirrors the movements of the satellites around a planet.
The silver rings of this beguiling Planet Kinetic Mobile spin gracefully around a central sphere. The motion is continuous and, at first glance, impossible to fathom. The secret lies in the base; a battery-powered motor spins a powerful magnet, which in turn exerts a variable force on the pendulum weight attached to the outer ring. Even when you know exactly how it works, the perpetual, rhythmic movement and gravity-defying structure still fascinate. Packed with retro geek-appeal the Planet Kinetic Mobile is an excellent addition to the office or home.
