Who is going?  I'll be there.  @Ultimaker will be there.  @Illuminarti will be there.  Who else?  I'm excited.  Also UM is supposed to make some big announcement!

PLEASE WATCH THIS 30 SECOND TEASER!

Do you guys have cell phones? I love meeting people there - you can text me when you find the Ultimaker booth and I'll run over to meet you.

Interesting! I might try to go

Don't try. Do it. It's amazing. They had about 70,000 people last year. 70,000. I don't know if you can imagine how many people that is. And it wasn't too crowded. This thing is quite large. 70000!

Here's another video teaser - much longer but more details. Pretty much anything that was in 2012 makerfaire came back for 2013 and will probably be there this year also. You can look up which exhibitors are planning to show up.

I heard a new rumor yesterday that there are MORE THAN ONE major announcements to occur at makerFaire NYC. More than one new things will be for sale. So check the UM Store in the days leading up to Sept 20.

NYC is a bit far for me, but maybe I'm going to the London Markerfair (Sep 4 to 6) and see if UM has a sneak preview there :wink:

Sorry, your right gr5, was just assuming it was a markerfair. Will have to check my facts better next time. But is still true is that UM will be present there.

Though I haven't heard the rumor, I was thinking TWO things to be exact :D

let's start a pool....

My guesses are

heated bed kit for UM1 (duh)

dual extruder for UM2.

I think there might be a third announcement unrelated to things for sale. But still good news.

I have seen Daid being quite busy working on Pink Unicorn. However, I think it's not realistic to expect the new Cura for the MF.

Realistic answering times of the (Europe based) support would be a nice announcement.

I'm also not so sure they will show the UM2 dual extrusion.

I'm not saying anything else (because I like mystery) but do not expect UM2 dual-extrusion. Sorry. But I hate to give off false-hopes in this aspect.

I had the impression in the past that you also like teasing... ;)

So, the heated UM1 bed kit can be taken for sure, I guess. And I could imagine that it is a good moment to switch from the old electronics to the Ultimainboard 2.x.

There might also be something Youmagine-related... and maybe something for connectivity... (remember that the Ultimaker website says something about WiFi-ready for the UM2? However, this would mean Daid kept the development unusually secret... B) )

My guess is that the dual extruder for UM1 is out of beta, with a new Cura update too :)

I'm actually pretty good at that. Sure, I'm not silent about everything, but there is stuff cooking that I have and will not say a word about.

If that gives us up to date secret info over what is going on I can get behind that. Lets start a Daid cookie fund (although Sander seems bribe-able as well :p).
