Has Microsoft seen the future of PCs, phones and tablets with its stackable 'modular computing device'?

From Computing.co.uk

"Microsoft has patented what it calls a 'modular computing device', which includes the use of stackable components to allow for simpler PC upgrade processes.

The filing also describes a ‘computing modular component’ also in a housing connected to the display component, as a well as a ‘processing system’ and memory also ‘disposed within the housing’.
