Color-coded gemelli

Gemelli (see link) colored according to the 568-B standard for network cable (white-orange/orange, white-green/blue, white-blue/green, white-brown/brown).

Very narrow market indeed, but common rabble might buy it just because it's colorful without appreciating the intended representation.

Good in salads, too. [jutta, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

Why not, do they come with cable ties? +

Hi, [absterge].

Don't forget the occasional crossover noodle.

Hello, [angel].

Yes, crossover noodles indeed, about 1%. It might be just as well to make 10base (straight through) and 100base (3/6 split) varieties.

Nifty. How do you do the connectors? Might gum up your crimping tool.

[edit] Ah, I've got it now, make connectors out of cellophane noodle...

Could you color-code it in such a way as to construct DNA with the pasta pieces?
