It must be railroad time, because I posed that question about a
week ago.

The answer: it can be done, but all of the available equipment
is sold for pro use and is very expensive. The first
consumer-level product is out, and still pretty expensive: $499 
at http://www.zeevee.com/home although it also comes with a
remote control system.
