Great idea but perhaps commenters could pitch in with common but unexpected sources for fiber optic cable. I don't think I have any laying around but I have found it in strange places like toys.

Do a Google shopping/Amazon search for TOSlink cables like this one. They're optical digital audio interconnects.
I got one at my local pound shop.
