that's not as absurd as it sounds. there are optical usb cables which work by converting the usb signals to and from light signals.220.127.116.11 16:48, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
I bet this is going to be an xkcd that gets recreated in real life.

There are ultraviolet LED lamps that are powered at 5V with an USB connector. xkcd in real life it's already done. 22.214.171.124 17:57, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
- I've been unable to find one with a hardwired male USB-C plug in a quick Google search. Though, there are many portable UV-C lamps which would count as USB-C socket to UV-C, so you could add on a USB-C plug-plug adapter and emulate this XKCD with two chained adapters. 126.96.36.199 19:20, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
