Rainbow colored Electronic Breadboard

Rainbow colored rows for Electronic Breadboard

Rainbow colored rows fro Electronic Breadboard would make it easier to distinguish which one is the correct connector. Columns do not require it, since it has most often only 5 connectors between slots.

       Not rainbow, resistor code colored to you can just look at the board if you forget the sequence. [+]

       Most breadboards are a single-shot injection moulding. This could be done by stacking coloured bars which clip over a chassis ... it's probably worth doing, too.   

       You may have a marketable product there, [Thrust].

       I'm sure I've had breadboards where every fifth-or-so row had a line embossed into it, for precisely this reason. But, a nice idea nonetheless.

       This idea was meant to work especially with Radio Shack Electronics Learning Lab, that has large breadboard in the middle. It is very difficult to see which row is which.

       Rainbow colored electronic beard could be fun.

       I'm trying to get my head around 'autoboner' on this one and the only thing I can come up with is skill loss. A brain that can do the wiring without the colours is better than one that actions with the colour. Whether this skill makes your life better and these actions translate to a greater community/societal good, is unknown.

       I disagree, being able able to do a mundane task fast and well is having a neuron pathway that is uniquely adapted and will give variance on the full neural network. If anyone can do the task easily then there is no adaption force and no new paths

       Probably still slightly add to it but not like the difference first would make. Fundamentally mental ability evolved via all the types of physical motion. A pulsing heart still feeds the brain with its needs.

       I don't know what you are talking about...

       [8th], most breadboards already have red and blue lines painted along the power buses; the manufacturer could just use the same process for the rainbow lines.
