It is already completely possible, we are just waiting for people to
write code.  Here is a rough sketch of how it would work:

1. Create object that has a JS representation that is a nice input widget.
2. Use plays with the widget.
3. As that happens, the widget JSON data to a python class/function
running in the kernel using the Kernel JS object.
4. The Python function coverts the JSON data to Python and handles accordingly.

If I had lots of spare time, I would definitely be working on this
stuff because it is not hard to code but is super high impact.
