Yes and it can be done with yesterday's technology too. There are no "numerous hurdles", just space and time.

More precision = more space and [much] more time. That's all. It's not a technology capability problem, but a cost and need problem. Time to solution is also a factor and possibly energy consumption (battery life). The later two are more about marketability and the user experience.
