Having seen the pictures of Simon's Raspberry Pi cluster at Southampton,
one thing that strikes me is how ugly all the cables make it look.

So how can this be improved - indeed is 'cable-free' possible?
- The network could be Wifi using micro adapters.
- USB Power could be at least daisy-chained, but what about contactless as
seen in various hip-bars for phone charging?
- Solar powered? Jim L: what is the maths here?
