How UGears Globus Works

The model comes with two sets of decorative continents while the main part of the set consists of two blocks: the globe itself and its base. The base features elegantly carved gears and hides the set’s main secret, the rubber-band mechanism that allows the sphere to spin on its axis. Just like other UGears sets, this mechanism needs winding up. To set the mechanism in action, pull the lever at the base clock-wise.

Interesting additional mechanic features of the Globus include the pendulum reduction one that slows down the spin and two extra parts: the Space Shuttle and the Sputnik. Connected to the main module via a planetary gear, these two satellites rotate around the Globus at different speeds. It adds more life to the model as well as makes watching it even more exciting, as both the Space Shuttle and the Sputnik rotate around the Earth so fast that they manage to make two rounds before the fully-wound-up rotation mechanism stops.

In addition, the Globus is made from high-quality plywood, and just like all the other UGears puzzle sets, it does not require any additional tools or glue. An 11-language illustrated catalog that comes with it is there to make sure your experience is enjoyable to the max.

    I’m hoping that this one will be a step towards the more complex ones.

    I ordered the Globus for my grandson. He has some of the easy Ugears sets already but I’m hoping that this one will be a step towards the more complex ones.
