it is a few USB remote controls that you can rack focus with (not tried them myself).

Re: remote for video use focus racking?

Zacuto is selling one and I think Manfrotto just released one.

On the other relatively affordable options...
Jag35 has a motorized follow focus and there's one from these guys...
Welcome to BV
I have not used any of these but am very curious how they behave in the real world. I badly want to put my mkIII on my Kessler crane!!
