Anyone knows where I can get this little baby in Europe?
Ay yo! Ay! Yo! Whose any 'a yous guys have this piece over here?
Trackpoint stick broke from the slightest touch. Disappointing.
!@#!# , missed the pre-order and it looks like they're not taking any more. Anyone feeling buyers remorse ??

I think it will come to Massdrop after they fulfill their initial pre-order shipment.

They said on Reddit that there will be a second phase (or rather normal selling with an US and an EU distributor :-), probably launching after 20th of October: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6pg272/photos_tex_yoda_ii/dkp3ihy/ (Missed the pre-order, too...)

Thanks, that makes me a bit more comfortable. Plus there are other reputable sites linking to it now. Still, the Montenegro thing is odd.
It might not be for sale again. reviews of the first version were pretty good; the new one only improves on it by adding programmability.
Another TrackPoint Keyboard appeared. http://watchmono.com/blog-entry-7562.html

Am I missing something here? Where are the mouse buttons for the trackpoint?
Where to buy this?
This looks like a great keyboard (and I did hit the request button), but does anybody know if there's a place to get a nice mechanical keyboard like this, with a trackpoint and three mouse buttons, that also has a full set of F keys? Ideally it'd also have media keys and a number pad...

HYPE!!
Hope the gb's still on Massdrop this time. HYPEEE
I want a lighter case for mobile use. Alminum case is too heavy.
Looks like the keyboard will be using USB Type-C, based the comments and the pictures of the PCB on their Facebook. They said they'll be bundling an A to C cable with the keyboard. Still using a USB 2.0 interface.
They will try to release the Yoda II in June.
The only thing has been kept me from buying this....... That's the arrangement of keyboard... We want function keys! What I want most is a rebaking of Space Saver II keyboard...
They're using what appears to be a sprintek controller, which is a clone of the trackpoint. IANAL, but the last patent I know of involved negative inertia and has expired as of 10/29/2016 https://www.google.com/patents/US5570111 . Although it was patented at the time, they have cloned it perfectly. The only difference I can tell, and I am very precise regarding trackpoints, is that the default sensitivity is almost exactly where I usually set it to, just a bit higher (which is 90-100% sensitivity)
How does the whole experience compare with a thinkpad?

It can work, but will take some adjustments. F[1-12] keys require two button presses which affects some IDE's debug/build keyboard shortcut, the ~ button has to be set to escape, so grave and tilde both require an extra button press, etc. Personally, I have two and I like them b/c the trackpoint makes me much more efficient and the downsides aren't huge. Also, I modded mine to allow hot-swap switches.

trackpoint is much better. i don't like using mouse unless it is for games. i just feel that I wasted alot of money because I just got the ikbc aluminum tkl 3 months ago.
do you know how this kB work with different OS?
Get your wallets ready everyone, because Yoda 2 is coming out before June according to their facebook page.
If anyone wants to sell one, contact me.
Do they actually have the licence to put in Trackpoint, or is it just a tiny joystick in the middle of the keyboard?
I need a mechanical trackpoint keyboard, any suggestion?

I'm not sure, as he hand-soldered the components. It says "working sample". Also not even sure if the case is done yet. For full production, I might be wrong but I think it would take a few months to produce.

Right now, the only three options are wait for the yoda 2, find a yoda 1 to buy, or build your own. It's not as easy as a phantom or other kit mechanical keyboard, you'll need to create your own case. After a year of searching, these are the only options for mechanical.
I need it!!! :(
Feel blessed today.

Would have snagged it off of you if I already didn't spend money on other keyboard parts :(

freakin' gouger.
Selling mine on /r/mechmarket and on ebay (it is cheaper on reddit since ebay charges fees). Has Cherry MX Blues. Decided to get a split keyboard instead.
edit: on hold until Sunday.

Hey, no prob! If you know of 3 already, and with all the requestors for this, you might be able to get a good bidding war going on ebay. Especially since these are so rarely available for purchase. (probably too rich for my blood but I'll at least throw some gas on the fire hoping to get it)
That's really excellent with the dolch keycaps. I don't usually like dolch, but it looks so perfect with the track nub.
This keyboard is so close to my perfect keyboard. I really hope V2 is bluetooth+wired, because that is literally my end game.

Another one showed up on reddit, but with cherry mx browns. I am really reluctant to sell on eBay because of fees and the fact that PayPal already has buyer protection built into it. Plus I am not interested in getting the highest price, just the amount I paid for it from a chap in the UK. Shipping was very expensive and my total cost was about $430. I'm losing $100 on my sale price, but I truly value the month long experience of using it before realizing that any 60% keyboard will torque my wrists.
any updates yet?
Nekros
i guess it will not be this year ;[
Nekros
i wish i could just forget about this until it comes out so i'd stop being disappointed for lack of updates! I couldn't find any news about if Tex is at CES 2017...
Damn, I can't Wait for the next drop.
My god. I need this!
FYI, I've asked them directly on their FB page.

I might be alone, but I'd love bluetooth+wired mode
i wonder what backlit means because according to this blog(http://watchmono.com/blog-entry-6545.html) it seams that backlit means that the case back lights up and not lighting for the keys
This needs to come Back asap. I almost regret having bought a poker 2 before this came out. It's just a shame :/
When is it available? I badly want this~~
