Ok, update:
I've decided to basically boot a keyboard on the thing, and if I do add one it will be an add-on. Right now, I'm looking into making a pip-boy like device (http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Pimp-Boy_3_Billion) that has a touch screen monitor. the hardest part will be finding the screen, but I might just get a small screen and have to use a mouse to move instead. I will need to add batteries and a small solar panel (the latter is somewhat unlikely) and I will also have to use a linux distro. I'm estimating the cost to be about $70-90

Besides probably the battery pack, this stuff isn't all too expensive. but it is probably more like 150

I have seen some interesting budget solutions using a webcam and a projector to create a virtual touchscreen with the aid of tracking software.

I'm not using a touchscreen. I'm going to use a wireless mouse, an inconvenience, but it must be done.
