Video of the Day: Glowing Earth and Constellation Globe
 
 

Today's Gadget Video Report features an interesting glowing Globe that shows geographic information by day and star maps by night.

At night this globe shows 88 constellations including their names.
See the Video Now.

The 21cm geographical globe is constructed from high-impact water-resistant material and mounted on a brass stand.
By day it shows political boundaries, natural features, capitals and major cities by population at a scale of 1:60,000,000. By night via the light-reactive sensor this unique product is then transformed into an illuminated map of the stars.

The Earth & Constellation Globe sells on Amazon UK for £40.62. I could not find it in a U.S. store yet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
