WOW!!!  Super cool. I hope you have a nice write up of your application
somewhere.  It would be nice to let others know about the functionality
possible with RTEMS.  I know that I often get asked "does XYZ exist
for RTEMS?" and it is pretty obvious that your app includes a number
of XYZ's that I did not know about. :)

Is it possible to give a hint on the ultimate application?

Which parts of this are generally available components? open source or
