Muji Blackboard Globe

This blackboard globe from Japanese “no frills” retailer Muji has serious appeal. It’s the perfect kind of this to leave out when your less prurient friends come over and see what kind of strange worlds they create.

It’s only £7 online, or if you’re a New Yorker, you can wait for Muji’s Soho store to open November 16th and hope they carry it.

    Why not leave it out for your more prurient friends, as well? I’d bet that their continents have more peninsulas.

    The only place I’d seen a chalkboard globe mentioned before was in a description of an 18th or 19th century math classroom, for use in teaching spherical trigonometry. Very cool find!

    It would be nice if they gave some indication of its size. Baseball? Basketball? I can’t tell from the picture.

    cheers Joel,

    That’s my travel agent brother’s Christmas bought.

    Or people could make their own blackboard globe using a cheap regular globe and spray-on blackboard paint.
