How It's Made {Globes}

This video is a little long- close to five minutes- but it's worth the watch if you like to see how things are made. I found the process of manufacturing globes completely fascinating! And, at the end of the video, I loved seeing all the globes moving across the ceiling of the factory. Pretty cool.

This was at once fascinating and hilarious---I had such a nostalgia throwback moment while watching it. Like being in 7th grade science, right down to the narrator's cheesy puns!

I'm going to forward this to my father in law---he's a civil engineer and he LOVES this sort of 'so that's how they do it' stuff. thanks courtney!

wow, this has really opened up my eyes! now if i were ever faced with the question "how do you make a globe", i'd be an expert on that! :)

also, the whole maps theme made me think of this little design house that uses maps for homeware & stationery

Anne- yes, it was a little like a video from middle school science class! Ha!

And I'm glad the rest of you enjoyed it too!
