When I was younger, I had a spinning globe on a stand that I used to place on my desk. I hardly ever used it, but I kept it there because I liked how it looked on my desk (plus, it lit up). I haven’t owned a globe since then but this Orion Black Ocean illuminated world globe is sorta making me want one again. At $85, it’s no cheap desk accessory (that’s the sale price, too!), but at least that sort of money will get you a globe that will be unlike most of your friend’s globes (if they even have any). And hey, the black oceans are a nice contrast to the usual blue oceans on traditional globes.
Oh, and flip the switch and you’ll see the continents and words on the globe light up in a very nice, high-contrast look.
