Genuitec is giving away twenty feature-rich Raspberry Pis at the event during its speaking session titled: Pimp your Pi with Eclipse For Your Home TV. The session will focus on how developers can create their own apps for Raspberry Pi by leveraging the small open source PiPlug app simply from within Eclipse. The PiPlug open source project can be found on Github: http://genuitec.github.io/piplug.

“We’re founding members of the Eclipse Foundation so naturally we attend these events, however this year unlike others we’re actually sponsoring just to have fun,” said Tim Webb, director of innovation and strategy for Genuitec. “Instead of pitching products, we are looking into the future along with the Eclipse community at the Internet of Things and how we can play a role in device connectivity in the home. We picked a Raspberry Pi with a TV as an accessible entertainment hub for homes showing how Eclipse engineers can simply build their own home entertainment creations.”

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? The Internet of Things refers to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. Or plainly put – if all materials that humans interact with have machine-readable identifiers then they can be managed and inventoried by computers. Think of the refrigerator that never runs out of milk because the milk tells the fridge it is running low, the fridge orders milk from AmazonFresh and has it delivered to a customer’s home in a few hours – that’s the Internet of Things.

The open source Eclipse platform is embracing IoT with multiple projects helping to enable using small devices in your everyday life. For more information on IoT platform initiatives at Eclipse, check out http://iot.eclipse.org.

Genuitec will be located at booth #10, and in attendance this year will be Tim Webb, director of innovation and strategy; Iris Meneley, marketing specialist; and Jed Anderson, product manager for Secure Delivery Center.
