1. A modular computer user interface system comprising:

  • a) a processor,b) a platform including a keyboard mounted thereon, said processor electrically connected to and responsive of data communication from said keyboard,c) at least one auxiliary module secured to said platform in segregated relation to said keyboard, andd) an interface assembly at least partially connected to said platform and structured to operatively interconnect said auxiliary module and said processor, wherein said interface assembly includes;

    i) a first adaptor structure disposed on said platform and structured to at least partially define said operative interconnection between said processor and said auxiliary module;

    ii) a second adaptor structure disposed on said auxiliary module and structured to be communicatively associated with said first adaptor and further defining said operative interconnection between said processor and said auxiliary module;

    wherein said first adaptor structure comprises a base operatively connected to said processor and communicatively connected to said second adaptor structure of said auxiliary module, and wherein said base and said second adaptor structure are removably connectable to one another so as to collectively define said operative interconnection between said auxiliary module and said processor, and wherein said operative interconnection is further defined by said base being removably secured to said platform.
