Twister Tube - Novelty Item

The Twister Tube stands 15" tall with a polished glass tube, sleek black base, and water resistant lid. When filled with distilled water and our special Twister Solution™, and powered on, a motor silently springs to life and begins turning the water. In seconds, a miniature tornado forms, drops down, and finally hovers just above the custom Twister Bar™. Although this is more commonly referred to as a water vortex, it looks and acts eerily like a real tornado including the "cloud deck".

There are other products on the market, however they are all either simple water vortex machines or colored beads. AFAIK, our product is the only one of its kind that creates a realistic approximation of an actual tornado.

Patent Status: Patent Pending
Invention Status: Available for purchase on Website

Keywords: twister tube tornado lamp water vortex electronic toy novelty

What's so special about the Twister Solution?

I'm just curious, what's in the special Twister Solution besides fluorescent dye? I like it, don't get me wrong, but I'm also amused at the prospect of having a large motorized version of the little 'manually operated' water vortex thingies I could get at kitschy souvenir shops fifteen years ago. Nice burst of nostalgia there. If I had the money, I'd get one. It could be the next Powerful Man's Status Object, Twister-in-a-Bottle; maybe you could make variations on the housing to match various office decor?. The black is nice and space-agey, but I don't think it would be well-suited to those people with offices done all in hand-carved oak. Make a smaller one with brighter housing colors and it could be the next lava lamp for college kids.

I'd be interested in getting a professional tornado-based scientist to see how accurate this thing is. And another question, do you plug it in or does it run on batteries? I didn't see that specified anywhere so I'm assuming it plugs in.

Thanks for the feedback

I cannot tell you what's in the Twister Solution but I can tell you that it's not a fluorescent dye.

The unit is plugged into an outlet.

I WANT ONE!!!

I'm almost positive I could stare at a Twister Tube for hours while being completely amused by it the whole time. Hope to get my hands on one or two soon.

I would want to make a custom case and put it in my fish tank...everyone stares at the tank already, why not give the fish something to stare at! lol

Where to buy?

Realy cool!
Where can i buy such a lamp?
Shipping to Germany possible ?

I want one too!

Yes please let us know when and where we can buy this thing. I love the "lightning" feature I saw in the video. It's a great product for everyone because the end user adds distilled water. That means less money to be spent on shipping, less worry of damage/leaks during shipping and it allows anyone to "refresh" the device if anything goes wrong.

Hell yeah! I signed up via your email. Again - keep us updated and let us know. I will be buying one if they are released and reasonable in terms of cost.

Good job!

is the Twister Tube a lost cause?

Are we wasting our time with emails and requests regarding the twister tube? I've emailed everyone I could think of associated with the Twister Tube and I have received no responses back. I know of a lava lamp community of 3,000 members that would kill for one of these. So if this isn't going to happen let us know so we can move on :(

It's a scam - just found out

It's a scam, they have no intention of producing these.

Not a Scam

Twister Tube will be available for purchase before the end of the year. If you are interested in having your own Twister Tube, go to their “contact us” section on their website and complete the form. I was told that I would receive an email before the launch date to make an advanced purchase. www.twistertube.com

Power draw

Are you able to give out the info on how much power it will draw? You mention it's 12v DC but what is the amperage? I am trying to calculate how much this will add to the power bill if ran 24/7. Guessing around 1amp so under 3$ per month, or am I far off? Thanks. Product looks great, I'd buy one if the price was right.
