Pca is a numpad / macropad with exposed components on the right edge. It features hot swap sockets, a rotary encoder for volume control, an optional OLED Display and LED underglow.

There are two configurations, either as a standard numpad with a rotary encoder and two extra keys on the north edge, or as a 22 key macropad with all 1u keys and a rotary encoder.  Layers are toggled with the Num Lock key, allowing you to switch between a traditional numpad, and a second navigation layer. The layer currently in use is displayed on the OLED.

Puca currently uses QMK firmware, with support for Vial too.

If there's interest I'm not against the idea. Essentially the same as a splergo

Looks great, would def. buy.
Would be cool to see mirrored as an option as someone already mentioned though even without it I'd still grab one :) (and it's nice to see you're an EU vendor, already looking forward to not having to pay an arm and a leg for shipping +import costs)

I do plan on doing a revision in future (later this year maybe?) that will be reversible like crkbd
