Ways of using Glowing Pieces

There are so many ways of using glowing pieces. They are great for the stage or at special occasions. They also are useful for a nighttime safety when biking. Lights help people to stay together as a group when dark.

What is EL Wire?

EL Wire (electroluminescent wire) is a flexible, low power consumption light source. It is like a very long flexible light bulb. The wire is made from two different sets of wires that are coated with phosphor and plastic that light up when connected to an EL Wire driver (inverter) or sequencer.
