Maybe a forearm mounted tablet, smartphone, or even an ipod running X10 Commander.

Check out Ed Cheung's website. Several years ago he was using a Casio watch that incorporated an IR remote for X10 and other control.

Oh... you meant inexpensive. Glad you found what you wanted/needed. I found several IR watches on the InterWeb that looked fun as well. I still think the tablet and smartphone apps have a lot to offer. I misplace my car keys more often than my phone.

Dave is correct. With tablet/smartphone and devices can generate X10 RF commands, you don't have to carry keychain remote.
