Looking for ways to build a motorized tripod Answered

Hi all-

I'm looking for a way to construct a tripod that can be set to rotate, tracking an object (basically would want it to be able to remain facing a certain object as it moves back and forth.  I basically need to have a camcorder that can be recording, and remained aimed at the subject without a cameraman).  Any ideas?

 Probably almost as cheap as you could buy the parts to make your own:  Only $189.
