Curious about installing an automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

I have been thinking that it is time for a new transmission in my 2013, and I am pretty much deadset on keeping it manual. Or at least I thought I was and then I got to thinking how hard it would be to swap an auto in and mount some paddle shifters in. So my question is, would it be worth or even possible to go for the auto with paddle shifters?

It's been tried but seems impractical. Someone also had a wireless version but they were cheap plastic and people said there was a lag with the wireless.

Here's a link describing a DIY method.

I would have thought that some enterprising company would have developed a steering wheel with this built in for cars that already had automatics but it never happened.
