Default Drive servo with it's own pot

I am just wondering if it is possible to drive a 360 degree servo with using its own pot as a textile switch? If no, any reccomendations on how to set up a system like this: 1 servo, battery, Pot switch that allows to drive servo in both directions. Seems simple enough, any ideas and or reccomendations on how to do this? Thanks

Measure the voltage output of the pot at the lowest and highest resistance and then introduce that voltage on the output side of the pot with the pot set at maximum resistance. A digital controller with a D/A converter is all you need, something like a RC circuit should work just fine.
