I'm just a talkative beginner, so you can stop reading now. I shake my head at how much copper we use. I welcome any innovation which is cost effective by finding a better way. Think of how much less copper you would need, in fact, then think of how small the wire will be in the future with LED's. Sorry about mentioning LED's, but you will also save even more wire with inherent resistors, since everything can be chained, like in line voltage. Fuses and quick connects can be housed inside of fixtures (one connect for going in, one for going out), eliminating hubs and splices and miles of leads. Use little quick connect splitters and just add-on to any fixture on the run. I don't know why they don't have resistors built into halogen bulbs or fixtures. No more splices during installs, but some quick connects with butt crimps in your service kit. I'm gonna eat breakfast now.
