FlatWire HDMI Cable Is Literally Flat Enough to Stick and Hide on the Wall

We saw a lot of cool technology at CES: Towering display booths studded with hundreds of screens that make the latest televisions and entertainment products into objects of techno-lust. Amidst all the flash, however, it was nice to see something practical, which we found with FlatWire's new home theater solution: Flat HDMI and power cabling that you can paint over.

Expanding upon its existing line of flat audio and video wires, the company's new HDMI flat wire looks like it would make wiring up that new super-thin OLED on the wall much easier, particularly if you're better with a firewall than drywall, and the company's flat power cables allow you to extend power from standard wall outlet. Apparently it's very safe too.

Of course, there's more to wall-mounting a gorgeous new television than wiring, and the FlatWire still requires a little bit of hands on (painting and attaching the connectors), so we'll go ahead and say that this is definitely for you DIY-ers out there. As for the rest of us, well, we'll the let pros handle it.

Check out the video after the break.
