This is my glowing keyboard mod.It is lit up with neon (electroluminescent) wire. I decided to use blue beacuse my case is blue and the whole set up is blue/red themed, and since red is too harsh on the eyes I chose blue. I also addes a switch on the back so I can turn it off when it gets annoying. I had to dig a trench with my dremel so the wire wouldn't get in the way when the keys are pushed down, then i glued the wire into the trench, routed the wire ot of the keyboard, added a switch and made a power outlet behind my pc where I plug it for the power.

I think you should have used LEDs. also where's the light for Multimedia keys and upper/lower lines are missing completely otherwise cool. 3/5

that looks really nice, but actually blue light is harsher on the eyes than red since its higher in the spectrum.

Is it possible to run enough power through the wires for a cordless mouse that run to the ketboard for this, or would that mean more mods?

Tnx! The neon wire requires an inverter that cant fit inside the keyboard an it also needs ventilation that's why i didn┬┤t draw power from the ps2 connector. Right now the inverter is just inside the case, and the power wire runs down tha main cable and has a headphone plugg at the end, that plug pluggs into the socket on the back of my pc.

Very Nice!
Suggestion: Why don't you try drawing the power from the PS/2 connector?
