Yup. I would something more serious from Fraunhofer institute. Several companies already have similar products. Eg Belkin WeMo.

There are some commercially available products available similar to this. For example: SmartLinc from Smarthome. Refer the link below: http://www.smarthome.com/2412N/SmartLinc-INSTEON-Central-Controller/p.aspx HexaBus looks quite similar to SmartLinc, except that HexaBus uses IPv6 protocol, probably has more security features and has USB router? How do the costs compare?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
