I came up with this idea while in the shower, out of town on a business trip. I needed someone in my lab to move an Ethernet cable for me, but was having a hard time describing which one. If I could only make that cable light up. As it turns out, some Ethernet switches can supply Power over Ethernet, controllable remotely. I imagined a cable that used this power to light up an Ethernet cable coated in Electroluminescent lighting.
I was granted a US Patent on this invention, my first.
