Now this is what we need. Moving towards the idea that technology should and will be built actually into the fabric of furniture – including wood. No more messy snakes f cables!! Yee har! Wishful thinking…

Says Engadget:

The basic idea – sandwiching two layers of conductive metal between layers
of wood to integrate power into the furniture – strikes us as an elegant,
creative way to get rid of the tangle of wires that we’re forced to contend
with when using normal furniture.

They do also point out that wood is flammable. I am sure some nanocoating or other would solve that problem.
