Auto belays for indoor sport lead climbing!?

In door sport climbing, top roping, on your own using the auto belay devices are great to help you train when no one wants to climb today.
How about some sort of device that pays the rope out of the ground while you practise lead climbing on your own? And has the ability to lock like a seatbelt if you take that fall as you push through the grades,
or a mobille device that you wheel to the bottom of your indoor pitch, securing it to bolts on the floor to hold it in position and has the rope wrapped around a drum inside that allows you to lead climb on your own because your climbing partner is at work and you've only got the one friend!
The release of the locking mechanism after the fall and the belay back to the floor is something for the mechanical engineers but surely I'm onto something here.......right!???
