About MOVA® International
The sun never sets at MOVA® International. As an expanding global corporation consisting of TurtleTech Design, Inc., MOVA Europe, and MOVA Asia, they work both around the globe and around the clock to maintain a streamlined network that allows them to continue developing their advanced technologies.
Founded in 2003, TurtleTech Design Inc., dba MOVA International, is headquartered in sunny San Diego, California. At the core, they are a technology company dedicated to advancing the dream of perpetual motion. Their mission is to apply advanced, patented technologies to create luxury products with unique and high-end designs that capture the imagination.
Their first breakthrough, the MOVA Globe, was dreamed up and developed in a basement in the small beach community of Cardiff-by-the-Sea by Bill French, a physicist and inventor with a lifelong interest in solar energy, magnetism and magic. After years of intensive research, product development, and various breakthrough patents, the MOVA Globe was born in 2004. Since then they've expanded their product line to include new sizes, shapes and designs.
Today, MOVA aspires to exemplify the best of both artistry and science in each MOVA Creation.
A Word from the Inventor of MOVA® – William W. French
I have a degree in physics from UC Berkeley and I spent my years working in R&D inventing things in the field of magnetic recording for big companies like Eastman Kodak. My real interest though was always “Art and Science” and solar powered objects in particular. Solar energy offered the possibility of creating autonomous, almost living things. I finally let myself create the kind of thing I always dreamed of when I began to put together the ideas from the MOVA Globe. It was exciting and risky. The process of combining all the elements together to bring my vision to life was the most enjoyable work I have ever done. It is a great personal joy to realize that there are many people in this busy, noisy world who appreciate my peaceful vision.
