I would like to discuss how all of these modules fit together.

I can think of two schemes. One is stacked modules for scaling up power, 1.

For things that don't require scaling so much, we could use a scheme similar to audio racks or disk drives in a computer. A metal frame or container could be constructed with a bus and cooling system on the back. On the front, the modules could be slid into grooves and then supported by clips or screws with there controls on the front panel. If a module broke, it could be slid out, opened, and fixed independently.

A combination of the two would probably be best. Empty computer towers would make a good container for the first prototype as used in this video: 2
