I've never seen anyone trying to do something like this. I believe you can send data and simple commands from the Cloud, but you have to be using a device with the IoT Analytic Functionality and a component as an actuator, however as I mentioned before you have to use an Edison or a Galileo, I'm not sure if this can be done with another board.
Mhmm ok. I will try something else to transfer data from the Intel Edison to my Zybo board. I noticed the Intel Edison has Bluetooth but I guess that it won't be capable of transmitting the data to a Zybo using Bluetooth.
Oh well, I'll continue my search for an approach to solve my case
