Does such a thing as a modular digital piano exist?

    Apologies if this is the wrong , but I've been looking all over the place and wanted to ask about this!
    I have an upright digital piano that I love to practice on, a full 88 keys, for the classical songs I like to play. I'd love a portable solution such that I can practice anywhere, or at least take up less space in my tiny apartment, but there really isn't such a thing as portable 88-key piano - it's portable in the same way a cello can be considered 'portable'; doable but cumbersome.
    So, roll-up pianos with silicone/membrane keys suck. Smaller digital pianos exist, but they sacrifice range for portability and often have smaller keys / shittier keypress actuation. I wonder if there's a product out there, or if there would be interest in, a modular portable piano system, where the user can have PutLocker 2-octave panels with fully-actuated keys at a time, to keep the overall size low. There'd be sockets along either side so that users could link more modules to either side, to give them more range, and then at one end (or in the middle of one of them?) could be the control box containing power supply, linkage control, volume, headphone jacks, system-on-a-chip controls, etc. Pedals could be handled via direct wire link to the control box or via bluetooth.
