Pickles the new light bulb???

We have all seen High Pressure Sodium lights. They are normally the orange colored lights that use for security in commercial application and street lights. The same sodium that get excited in that type of light is all so found in you common kosher pickle. When electricity pass across sodium the atoms discharges an orange light. The works in a light fixture and it also works in the pickle in this video.
Please not the steam coming from the pickle. That same steam could come off of you if you were to do this experiment yourself. This is not something you should do at home.

  1. Hey friends check this out. I recently found these kinetics tiles. These are LED tiles and provide dancing light display, images or even movies shown on the wall ceiling of hotel or restaurant. They have to be seen to be understood. Just take a look:-D
