Last week at EclipseCon Europe ECF committer Wim Jongman gave a talk where he cooked an egg using a hotplate, a Raspberry Pi, ECF Remote Services, and Eclipse Nebula.   Here's a screenshot of the RCP app he created to remotely control the Raspberry Pi and the connected hotplate:

Although I wasn't able to attend, I understand that after cooking, Wim consumed the egg onstage...and it went down pretty easy.  I'm looking forward to watching the video of the talk.  Congrats Wim.

Also, the Eclipse Newsletter has articles focused on Internet of Things, and we have an article about using ECF Remote Services with Raspberry Pi GPIO, which was also used to implement some of the behavior underneath Wim's egg cooker.

For other tutorials on using Remote Services with the Raspberry Pi as well as in other runtime contexts, see the ECF wiki documentation page.
