The thing that worries me about the RX100 is how tiny it is. Have you ever pressed two buttons at once because of its size?

No. Possibly slightly smaller than average hands may help, maybe I'm just more careful.

In the library, they have those oversize print books, which are several times larger than the regular ones, for the people with bad eyesight and shaky hands.

Like those super oversize desk calculators I see in some shops where the number buttons are possibly 4 times bigger than normal.

An RX100 like that--almost no heavier, but much larger, could do well. It would be like holding a hollow cardboard box, and when dropped, would probably float to the ground slowly as well.

A little pop-out parachute would be a nice option.
