Rather than waiting for LEGO to come up with something, Lasse Mogensen and Soren Jensen decided to make it themselves. It's called the MinuteBot Base and they've jumped on Kickstarter to see if they can raise the funds to put it into production.
So what is it exactly? It a LEGO baseplate, the height of a normal Technic beam with 21 x 30 holes.

At the time of this blog post, they had raised nearly $6,000 of their $11,000 target. Basically that means they need another $5000 to meet their target and start production. What happens if they don't meet the target? Don't worry, you don't actually pay your money unless they raise all the funds they need.
You can support their project and pick up your very own MinuteBot base here:
($30 for one, cheaper if you buy multiple)
