Remote sensor for thermostats

This is one of the Mil­lion Dol­lar Ideas. Please, take this idea, and make it a real­i­ty, so I can buy it. And if you know that this exists now, please point me to it!

You know those weather/temperature sta­tions you can buy every­where now? The ones with the 2, 4 or 16 remote sen­sors, so you can see what the tem­per­a­ture is out­side, in your room, and in the dog house? Well, some­one needs to take that tech­nol­o­gy and apply it to the ther­mo­stat.

I want my ther­mo­stat, wher­ev­er it is (incon­ve­nient­ly) locat­ed, to be able to access 2, 4 or 16 remote sen­sors about the house. Then it could be pro­grammed to set the tem­per­a­ture based on the read­ing in our bed­room at night, the kitchen in the morn­ing, and the baby’s room dur­ing nap time.

It seems like an easy, cheap way to approx­i­mate zoned heat­ing.
