Hi GIS, did you already get yours? I’m from Cologne
One question especially to the Berlin people: do you already know how to get your kniterate to its place? I have to transport my kniterate to the first floor in December / January and because DHL only delivers to the front door on the ground floor, I have a serious problem. In addition, I have to know the exact time of arrival. I do not know what Cologne or Dusseldorf looks like, but in Berlin DHL is very unpredictable (in my district). Sometimes they are faster than the tracking website says, sometimes they’re delivering 3 days or even one week later. You can imagine my stress level when I am only thinking about it.
Hey, I will aswell purchase for one of these awesome machines.
regarding DHL: I have made the experience that talking to the hotline / driver can help. Don’t know how it is in Berlin.
Moreover, since I am a web and mobile developer, I would also offer web shop / eCommerce development for ordering (customizable) products and communicate from/to the machine (even better, if an open API is being provided)
A maybe interesting information for Cologne and Düsseldorf (actually all NRW):
There is a governmental program in NRW which funds (refunds!) 80% of investments in digitalisation which I am also able to help with.
It refunds up to 15.000 € for developing digitalisation technologies (no hardware unfortunately) and can be cumulated by companies for bigger projects.
Maybe there are some of you interested in developing a first eComemrce system for this and like to team up to split the costs and effort.
@zsazsa I have now set up a trello board for this. https://trello.com/b/ijbTjgoQ/kniterate-germany
It is public. You can apply for being added / able to edit /add cards to the board.
Maybe we will switch to private if necessary.
The board is kept in english.
Questions for development, fundings can be asked here or via e-mail.
I’m from Basel, Switzerland living right next to the German border, where my wife comes from.
I backed the Kickstarter campaign and ordered the machine to be sent to Germany, to my mother-in-law.
I am not sure yet if I will keep the machine in Germany or move it to Basel.
I assume you implied that we should post our Trello username here in the forums?
Because there is no “apply for board” functionality in Trello…
So here’s mine: patmachler1
Hi, I have ordered a machine as well – first batch, delievery May or June 2019, hopefully. I am based in Leipzig and would be happy to connect at least with the Berlin people 🙂 My Trello account is bheese
I have a question about the shipping. The kniterate is going to be shipped after the BREXIT. Is there an opportunity for you not to ship the kniterate from somewhere outside of the EU? The duty is not calculable if it’s going to be shipped out of UK to EU countries. It will become real trouble.
