The World’s Brightest Swizzle Stick

While not explicitly intended as a swizzle stick, the Mahoo light from Stefano Pistilli uses the conduction of water to complete the circuit and power the light inside. Utilizing an interesting environmental trigger, these could also be great night time pool toys or even help see and identify other scuba divers on a night dive. Nevertheless, I’m drinking alone tonight and I’m hoping scotch and soda has enough electrolytes to power this friendly light on.

    Hate this idea! This sort of thing already exists and is in use at Radio City Music Hall in NY. They were a huge distraction because they cast too much light and actually made it harder to see the performer.

    @ Brian-
    “…not explicitly intended as a swizzle stick…”

    Is there any way that the brightness/color could be reflective of minerals/chemicals in the liquid?

    ie- white = safe to drink
    red= not so much….

  • Stefano Pistilli says:

    no..the neon tubes are only white or red or blu but it depends on what color you choose to use..

    take care

  • Lo says:

    I love this idea! Are they in production? Or are the sticks shown made exclusively for yourself?

    • Stefano Pistilli says:

      if you are talking about neon tubes…YES..they a common neon tubes that you can buy everywhere..but all the structure is produced by Stefano Pistilli design studio..

      have a nice day
      take care

    “uses the conduction of water to complete the circuit and power the light inside. Utilizing an interesting environmental trigger, these could also be great night time pool toys or even help see and identify other scuba divers on a night dive.”

    why would you want to pass electric current in a pool?

    • i’m sorry but the water doesn’t complete the circuit because there isn’t electric current inside the vase…

      these neon tubes are turned on without electrical connection but by plasma radiations (not harmful) created by a generator near the outlet. These radiations are brought to the vase with a thin cable which ends up in the water..

      so if you dip all tube into this water it doesn’t turn on…

      anyway you have had a good idea.. :)

      take care

    this is about an ipotetic handpocket version :)

    it’s very difficult to explain i hope i’ve done it well:)

  • carlos says:

    It would be a great idea if you post a description of the correct procedure for making thise neon light to turn on an a glass of eater and, by dooing so, not letting any idiot person to play with it in a pool or in the ocean. jajaja.
    But realy, it would be cool to see how to make thise experiment.

    • it is not an experiment..it is a product..so..i’m sorry but i can’t say to you anymore..you can read about it on description and on posts i have written here

      kind regards

  • tina says:

    I don’t understand why the stick held by the hand is lit up as it is totally outside of the water. Was the thing not supposed to use water to be connected? If you can do it with water, what’s the purpose of it then? or it is just a nice render?

    Any florescent light when brought near a plasma light/globe will light even with out anything touching its contacts. This also works with LEDs and LCDs. The operation is through electromagnetic radiation. All someone needs to do to create the same effect as the product above is to go to a novelty shop and buy a plasma light that can be removed from its base and then place a vase above it with a little water on the bottom and put a florescent light in or close to it and it will light (there MIGHT be a risk of electrocution as I don’t know a lot about the properties of electricity).

    Cool Idea though. Ever considered making an LED version?

  • “”””there MIGHT be a risk””””…well done…you have to study my friend..so you can explane to us what you know about you seem so clever…

    don’t worry…there isn’t a risk…

    search about Denis Santachiara and Nikola Tesla..

    Mahoo light is something of different..

    study my friend…study..

    In what way does your product differ if you don’t mind me asking?

    For the record I do like this product and would love to have one if they were available for purchase!

    I think it might be better if you simply post a video showing the your product rather then posting pictures. By reading the comments above it appears that most people are confused at the significance of what you have designed.
