Switch pictures based on attributes selected in configurable product

My ultimate goal is to have a configurable product with selectable attributes (dropdowns) and once you’ve selected those attributes the product images switch to show the picture set for that specific product.

Since configurable products are made up of simple products I thought this could possibly be achieved through some javascript trickery and pulling the photo set for the simple product selected.

I was just curious if anyone has tackled this idea yet or if I was treading on new territory. If it’s new, then I’d love to get the discussion started on ideas of how it could be pulled off.
