Eric Pietrowicz aka ubiqueIoT/zciwor shared a wireless macropad called Gigapad, along with a detailed write-up. The name does not refer to the size but Bluetooth and its frequency in the Gigahertz range.

My latest project: Gigapad. A custom wireless macropad running ZMK. I put together a full write-up of the build with all of the design files and ZMK setup instructions – zciwor.
