Are you serious? That headline makes absolutely no sense! It's a deceptive, sensationalist headline meant to attract eyeballs. Flatwire has nothing to do with replacing wireless anything!

OK, I'm still looking for the camera. It's not April 1st yet, is it? This is just silly... I can see advantages regarding the distribution of power, but to say it can be hidden by "a little spackle and paint" is somewhat limiting. What about walls that have wainscoting or wallpaper, chair rails or other obstructions that disallow the wire to simply be laid on the wall and covered up? What happens when you want to move the object you're connecting? This is another great example of media hype.
