(Cheap) Dedicated Hotkey Keyboard? Answered

I'm doing a project where I need a device that can launch multiple programs from shortcuts on the desktop without a mouse or keyboard. I'd usually just get an external numpad and map the shortcuts to that, but the programs use the number keys, so I wouldn't want to map shortcuts to anything on the numpad.  I'm not exactly sure what to look for, but searching for "programmable keyboard" only returns a few (totally overpriced) results.  Does anybody have any ideas?  It doesn't necessarily have to be pretty, but that's always a bonus.
