Raspberry PI inside a battery grip

Looks VEEEEERY interesting :)
This shows how useless is the Canon grip with just shutter button, wheel and zoom buttons replicated and nothing else.
Also, it is the most annoying grips since you can't just attach it to the bottom of the camera but it has to stick inside the camera itself (battery compartment) .
What do you think about it?

Hello,
I'm able to fully control a 5D Mark III connected with usb to a Raspberry and use Eos Utility on a remote windows device through an wireless connection whit router( but I think is possible also with adhoc connection). Basically it is only to share usb over ip (wired or wireless). Whit a battery grip we can have a low cost wft-e7 ;-)
