Donya's HDMI Cables Light Up Your Home Theater

We're not able to speak for everyone, obviously, but we certainly don't go out of our way to make sure our HDMI cables are visible to house guests. In fact, we go to rather extreme lengths to make sure the cabling in our home theater systems is concealed. Rather than trying to hide something as natural as an HDMI cable in a high definition entertainment system, accessory maker Donya is giving you a reason (and a way) to flaunt the connectors that generally look so unsightly.

Due to Donya being a Japanese company with no English language website, much of the details are lost in translation. But really, there's not much to "get" here; it's an HDMI cable, and it lights up like a Christmas tree whenever plugged in and sending along digital signals. Who says cables have to be hidden, anyway? If you're interested in picking up a few for your own AV center, you can expect to pay right around $10 (in Yen, naturally) plus a good deal more in shipping.

This might work good in clubs or maybe even for DJ light shows, something to that affect, but for home theatre forget it.

I know if I am watching some HD video in the evening with low lighting (obviously better picture this way) the last thing I would want to see is a huge glowing light from behind my TV/receiver....that is unless i had alien friends that glowed visiting me

If they would make an ethernet cable like this (perhaps requiring a PoE switch), and give them a button on each end that could toggle the light on and off, they'd sell billions.

I've seen dozens of patch panels where the wiring is a mess and that invention would reduce errors and save large amounts of time.

Why would you want a lighted HDMI cable?

That's easy: For the same reason you need spinning rims and a rear spoiler on a 1993 Honda Civic.

Yeah I dont see this being used much. I think the home theater and PC environment less blue LEDs. . .

Much less blue LEDs.

I could see the need for this on a cable that may get unplugged and plugged in alot but an HDMI cable once hooked up shouldn't need to e moved.
