       This seems like the pride of 1999. Aren't the tech cognoscenti doing away with wires and cables? I understand it is not even needed for phones any more!

       I can imagine dozing in my wired chair while she's running the mixer in the kitchen and then the washing machine kicks in and my chair busts into flames. So, [+] for fire hazard?

       I believe you have invented the conference table. What's most remarkable, is that you invented it, manufactured it and then traveled FORWARDS in time to post this. Very sophisticated this time travel stuff.   

       Actually, I'd like to see cable routing on the inside of table legs. Oh, that gives me an idea...

       A cool thing would be to have the TV remote actually attached to the TV by a cable. Then you could point it anywhere you wanted, even away from the TV and it would still work fine.

       How, exactly, would I attach a cable to my TV remote? can you attach a cable to a phone app?

       See link. I read they can be installed by any service technician.
