Snake pits of cables are unavoidable around computers, TV sets and audio systems.  Or are they?  One company making strides toward a completely wireless future is Powermat.  And now thanks to a partnership between DuPont and the Power Matters Alliance, Corian countertops will soon be embedded with Powermat wireless charging.  Corian is a solid surface, a synthetic granite alternative, used for countertops everywhere from kitchens and meeting rooms to hospitals and research labs.  The embedded Powermat technology will allow you to wirelessly charge your smartphone, tablet and other electronic gadgets simply by placing them on the counter.  All you need to do is plug in a small device into the charging port of your gadget, which sits there permanently.  How awesome is that?  $TBA.
