Mixstik Lets You Easily Master Cocktails Making

Magnified Self presents MixStik, a LED stick to help anyone make perfect drinks, no experience necessary. The LEDs indicate the specific amount of ingredients needed for each cocktail. It couldn’t be easier, everybody can mix and have fun doing it!

Once MixStik is connected to a phone via Bluetooth, the user picks a recipe on the app and places the stick into a glass or shaker. The stick lights up with colors according to the recipe: the LED lights show the user the quantity of each ingredient needed. After that, the user just pours up to wherever the lights go on the stick.

To get the most precise volumes it’s easy to calibrate the stick for a particular shaker or glass.

The ruler mode enables the height, the top and bottom diameters to be measured using the LED’s. The app can also suggest drinks based on ingredients that the user has to hand.

MixStik is not limited to cocktail preparation. It has other entertaining uses: light painting/light texting (the user enters a short text and uses the in-app camera settings to shoot beautiful light paintings with texts) or even game/music (control a game or music with the accelerometer). Thanks to an open API, the possibilities are endless!
