Look At The Blinkenlights!

As more and more products convert to services in the cloud, server rooms grow ever darker. Maybe science fiction ruined me from the start, but I yearn for something out of a World's Fair acid nightmare where I can throw a switch and get some satisfying blips, bloops, and whirls.

Yes please.

One idea I had was to output site visitor activity to a wall of LEDs that would blink and change color based on their location and activity.
