    u can get that glow wire, like EL cable but thinner and wrap it around the keys (pull keys off wrap under it, so it glows through the gaps) of the keypad, keyboard, other buttons etc. powered by 5v so u can just wire it to the ps2 port also

    That may not be such a bad idea Paulzy.... When I first read what you were writing... I was expecting you to say wrap it around the buttons.... On the outside.... . I'm not sure if you all ever saw the ghetto job that was done in the adverisement for Target using their neon wires. It was hilarious... I still laugh about getting a tube of super glue with it.

    I like your thought of using it as backlighting...

    I'm gonna hack a backlit remote control or a cell phone keypad as soon as I finish remodeling my house...(never?)
    I'm gonna use blue LEDS
    If it ain't broken, open it to see what makes it "tick".
