Here is something that is bound to baffle anyone. At the first sight it looks like a straw poking out of a plastic cup waiting for you to sip the tasty liquid inside the cup but when the lights in the room is turned off and you see a narrow stream of light emanating from the straw, you are simply confused about what to do with the straw â sip with it or see with it. This is no ordinary straw. It is the Sip of Light straw â a stylish new table lamp powered by battery. To turn on the light simply bend the straw and to turn the light off straighten it. As for sipping the drink, try a real straw.
