I could bring out my Cupcake - though I still really need to get it printing
reliably.
Among other things that I'm sure we can showcase:

- Andy Tibbit's Burning Man Ship + Tripods
- I have a couple of projects that should be ready in the next month, well
before we could get a Makerfaire up.
- There are any number of Dorkbot projects worth showing off.
