Wifi wall outlet

Last Modified: 2015-04-08
I is it possible to turn a wall outlet on/off by way of a cell phone app?

My initial thinking was to have a device that lived between the outlet and the wall.  It would have an IPV6 address and I would be able to enable or disable whatever was plugged into it via the cell phone.  

Does this sort of thing exist.  I would need many of them and they would have various uses.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.
