They are going to need a pretty powerful laser to run all the cup warmers,
battery chargers and blinky christmas trees :O )      and I think its pretty
funny 'could mean the disappearance of a port used almost universally...'
Motherboard still include serial ports a lot of time,  I cant see
transitioning away fom USB going any faster either.   Maybe by 2025...

Cable and connector would have optical data path and 24V super- conducting electrical power path.

24V AC 1kHz for galvanically decoupling. A device would have a
rectifier and a step-dopwn converter
