I wish Festool greatly expanded their 12v line.  Jigsaw, impact driver and planer to name a few of the tools which would complement the CXS and TXS rather well. 
RO90, RO150, CXS, DWC18, DOMINO 700, TS55, CARVEX, PRO5, MIDI, MFT 1080

A Bluetooth integrated battery for the cordless sanders. Was a little surprised to find out today that the current line can't trigger a Bluetooth-enabled vac. Though I understand the appeal of a non-tethered-by-anything sander, and I guess the BT remote button is almost as good.

I thought the smoke coming out was the saw stop feature.

They do; part number 202113 (or 202112 in the UK?). This adaptor has a couple of other features too, which you may, or may not, use.

Only when the brake pad is nearing the end of its life! [big grin]

Yeah! This seems like it could easily be produced (who cares where) and sold. Would make GREAT extra use for my 8+ festool batteries. I feel like festool might be the only notable tool line without this bonus product. Excluding the £150 sys rock option for usb charging. . . . . [eek] [eek]
there's nothing like the right tool for the job

A trim router intended for CNC operation:

 - narrow (~43mm diameter like the Kress 800-FME)
 - cylindrical body which is easily clamped
 - large collet, at least up to 1/2" (ER-20 would be nice, as opposed to something proprietary) --- the largest collet option for the smaller/lighter trim routers seems to be a 3/8"
 - brushless motor with variable speed --- something like the 10,000--30,000 RPM the Makita affords would be fine, though the higher speeds aren't needed, and lower ones, if they could be achieved w/ suitable torque, would be welcome
 - as powerful as one can get out of a 15A 110V outlet in the U.S. --- I'd be fine w/ using a dedicated circuit

The interesting part about this request is that Festool apparently does supply the router component used in the Shaper Origin.

A trim router "as powerful as one can get out of a 15A 110V outlet" and "large collet, at least up to 1/2"?
At 1700W this will not be a trim router.
Brushless AC motor in a power tool? Doubt it.
