I came across the Gyration keyboard and pointer devices on the Internet. It looks promising.

I am not sure if Linux driver support available for all the features.

I have the gyration mouse & keyboard bundle & both work great - I haven't played w/the special
buttons along the top of the keyboard but I dug up X bindings for them somewhere just haven't tried it
yet - think I got them from the myth mailinglist...

I'm using a LiteOn AirBoard, bought from here. It's a laptop keyboard with grips left & right, with an integrated mouse stick in the upper-right corner.

It works pretty well, though the mouse stick moves the cursor in only the eight compass points (not as much of a PITA as it sounds). Also it's only a 2-button mouse, and chording the buttons doesn't seem to work properly.

The reason I bought this model is it's explicitly designed to allow teaching its codes to a learning remote -- even the mouse -- and I can confirm that this works just fine with my MX-500.
