sf 1971 Rolf Ulrici Raumschiff Monitor: Geheimer Start (I'll have to check whether the book is still in my parent's basement) Professor Charivari puts a kettle with cold water on his wooden desk and pours boiling water into the tea pot a few minutes later. Superhirn speculates that he might have used microwaves to heat the water, but induction seems much more likely.

Der Tisch "Kopa" ist unter der Holzoberfläche durchgehend mit Induktionsspulen bestückt. Die Kochzonen können frei gewählt werden.

While this is a design study, it is possible to build it with current technology.

A stove with a wooden surface is almost exactly like Ulrici described it in 1971.
