Steadycam options?

When I first saw the effect of a steadycam, I was hooked. Given the expense of the setup, and the amount of equipment required, I gave up. I've tried a couple of techniques that use the tripod a makeshift support, but they are still jumpy.

A few weeks ago I saw a video of a hand-held device that worked really well, but with a thousand dollar price tag, it's still crazy expensive. Surely there must be a low-cost solution?
