Still exists - it's called "Powerline" or "Powerlink" trunking.

I used loads of this - fitted at desktop height - when fitting-out offices, labs, workshops and the like. It avoided the need to scrobble around under desks/benches when you needed to pick-up an additional power outlet.

Annoyingly they didn't offer Schuko or 16/32A "Commando" type outlets...
