There are only few functional Roto-Spheres (or Sputniks) on this planet and Memphis holds one of them. Take a viewing of this dazzling footage by the inventor Warren Milks, compiled by Debra Jane Seltzer of RoadsideArchitecture.com. In this video there are Roto-Spheres as well as their “siblings,” Turn-Stars and Roto-Rings.
Debra Jane has compiled extensive info on these types of signs. She tells us that although all of these signs used gears that enabled them to counter-rotate, the Roto-Sphere was the most popular choice for businesses wanting a sign like this.
Finally, I highly recommend making a stop at Joe’s for your craft beer selection.
