It will be SO nice one day when everything is wireless.. will make moving a computer SO easy.

What they really need to figure out, is wireless electricity. I hate batteries. I know they can do it! lol.
Actually they can, it's not that far fetched as some may think. The problem is that by now, I think there's a team of Japanese researches, they managed under laboratory conditions (aka zero EMI radiations) to transmit over a few meters enough power to charge a mobile phone. A mobile phone needs a couple of miliwatts tho, so to power a whole rig...

This whole "all wireless" concept came to me while arguing with my wife about all the wires that seem to grow and tangle beneath my desk and I found it may be a market for it.

What do you think, would you pay extra 300$ for a HTPC if it had nothing more than a wire to plug it? I mean, a cute box, silent, enough performance even for light gaming, huge HDD and only one wire coming out. Internet/network access WI-Fi, wireless keyboard and mouse, remote control for media center, wireless connected to a 50" plasma (HDMI + sound)

There are a few companies that have demonstrated this recently (CES07, 08).
Once again...
