GLOWING WIRE / Wire

GLOWING WIRE
GLOWING WIRE

Nowadays, there are too many wires crowed together near the patch board. It’s hard to identify one from others.
With the help of new pressure sensing fluorescent paint technology, we designed GLOWING WIRE to provides a simple way to identify one wire from others.The special paint can sense pressure and start glowing, we use this characteristic to design the GLOWING WIRE.
If you want to identify one wire, all you need to do is squeeze it, then the fluorescent paint will sense pressure and start glowing. After 5 seconds, the whole wire will glow. The light will gradually fading in 30 seconds.
It’s much easier to find out where it extended to.
