Swiss scientists have developed a computerised solution to flat-pack fury.
They have designed the computerised kit so that self-assembly furniture tells buyers how to put it together.
According to New Scientist magazine, each piece in the flat-pack is fitted with movement sensors that feed data into a battery-powered microchip.
Each part 'knows' where it is in relation to the others and can give the buyer running instructions.
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology's running instructions are transmitted to a nearby computer screen via a wireless connection.
Team leader Stavros Antifakos said the design would help people unable to understand the paper instructions and who end up hitting things with hammers.
The next step for the scientists is to add LED-displays to the sensors, so that each piece flashes when it is needed, Antifakos said.
