Lightbulb any way to connect molex to outside of case?

I was loooking to buy one of this but it says molex connector...is there any way to rig this to outside my case (thinking near my keyboard (aobu 2' cable needed if that's possible from molex)). i was thinking this would look cool lighting up the keyboard in a dark room...so can this be done like hooking it up to an AC outlet somehow or do i have to get a long@$$ molex power cord(s)?

I just read that and it say's it's usb i could'nt see where it say's molex any where,i think all you need is an open usb port and it's powered by that.

*EDIT* you beat me to it

That or simply run it out an open PCI Slot out the back and get an extender if you want to be ghetto But yeah they make just about any kind of front panel imagineable now.

I was wondering if they made on of these , but i coudn't find it, thanks musjunk. I realize an AC->molex would be kinda tough (if not impossible) because you'd need an inverter and a regulator...hm...
