Would it be possible to condense the components of an iron into a smaller form factor while maintaining a touchable surface and cordless?

Irons are big and bulky. They take up space, dead space. They are cumbersome and always attached to wall, getting in the way.

Key components

- Small as a cordless mouse
- Ability to pull condesation directly from the air for steam
- Ability to be powered wirelessly
- Ability to be cool to the touch
- Egonomic design

There obviously are some scientific hurdles to overcome but there are fields that are showing promise that can contribute to the provocative thought on this subject.
