I saw this a while back and I think it's pretty clever. Could be really handy with a small camera like this on a crane or a car rig. I'll probably build one, but add LANC in and out support.

It would be nice if somebody designed something that somehow uses the readily available LANC based switches that mount on tripod handles, rather than the wii controller

That's what I plan to add to this design. LANC code is avalible for Arduino.

That would be awesome, except for a couple of walk in walk outs as camera operator, I haven't had focus on a tripod arm since uni in 1990.
