And right in two versions: wireless and wired with per-key RGB.

A 'family' of mechanical numpad/macro pads that can be configured either as a classic 17-key numpad, or as a 20 key (5x4) macro pad. […] Designed as a companion to most 60% keyboards, being the same 5 row 'height' – Tweetydabirdie.

DaNumPad unWired: Fully wireless (BT, nRF85420 MCU), hot-swap with support for 17-20 keys and 1-2 encoders, ZMK compatible.

DaNumPad 17 Glow: Wired (USB-C), classic 17-key numpad layout, Atmega32u4 MCU, full per-key RGB, QMK compatible.
