Universal Connectors for 3D printing

Been thinking a little about 3D printing, and the need for universal connectors so that all things should be augmentable by adding bits you print.

So, for instance, you could get a fridge that doesn’t have set shelves, but just space for connectors to slot on.  Then you print out the exact configuration you want.

Unfortunately, I can see a future though where several ‘proprietary systems’ of connectors pop up, and we go through the physical equivalent of the media format wars, the Bluray vs HDD system of things.

Anyway, I found this slideshow from 2008, by JFTesser, of a bench system made exclusively from a universal connector style system.  Lovely.
