"Obviously the Type I and Type II Phasers from ST:TOS, tho I know I've seen stories with computers that used this concept."

"Transformers had this. Headmasters, Powermasters, and Targetmasters. There were a few that involved two non-organic species, for their simbiot components."

"R2D2 fits in the X-Wing. "

"Dov Moran, who inventor of the flash drive, is working on a mobile phone for which this will be a standard feature. It's call Modu:"

"Ashley, Nyborg, Raffaele - great comments! I was hoping some readers could help me out.
Yossi - that's a cool concept. I did a story on it a while back; see Modu Cell Phone Module Adds Connectivity To Everything (it includes a Modu demonstration video). I'd forgotten about that one."

"Very much reminds me of the Modu concept (which I thought I saw here, but perhaps not). A modular cell phone kernal that you can insert into multiple device types and skins:"

"Doh! You just said that. I promise to read all the comments before I post next time. lol"

"i don't think we ever saw an actor actually snap a type-i phaser into a type-ii phaser dock, so this functionality wasn't really clear to the viewer ... it was clearly intended by the production designers though"

"Thank god there's someone else besides me who thought about transformers' headmasters ^_^;"
