Flatwire — Affordable paper-thin, flexible wiring


Pretty cool.

June Fletcher wrote about it in today's Wall Street Journal as follows:


    Southwire introduced a new generation of Flatwire [top], its paper-thin, flexible wiring that sticks to a wall with adhesive and can be spackled over and painted. In stores by year end and costing from $2.49 to $6 a foot, it's a do-it-yourself way to wire indoor wall sconces, smart-home devices and other applications.


Bonus: bookofjoe readers, as well as those who aren't that fortunate — or unfortunate, depending on your point of view — can shop at the online Flatwire store right now.

Why wait till year's end?

Avoid the holiday rush, that's our philosophy.

This stuff is beautiful! I'd want to find a way to incorporate it into the design of a room. Paint over it? Horrors!
