Hello,
I have made a servo motor you can control over Ethernet - please have a look at our Kickstarter: Kickstarter.
The Motor can be controlled over TCP with XML formatted messages.

You could like that, because there is no need for device drivers or cable adapters, everything you need is a power supply and an ethernet cable. This means you do not need any Arduino, Raspberrys or beaglebones to move something.
Further more it is not a big thing to open TCP sockets in Java .

The communication speed is around 1kHz. The drive is sending its actual position continuously back to the connected computer.

We have also build a couple of projects with our motors:
6-DOF Robot Arm running with C#


Laser scanner:


What do you think, is there a need for such a motor?

Cheers,
Chris
