I had the forsight to buy one some months back and could happily offer it to you!
It's made by the ancient English firm of James A. Sinclair and makes one look rather like a horse in harness.
It presently has a 3/8" female socket on top (of an aluminium rod) waiting for something appropriate, like a ball and socket head etc.
I've not tried it yet but if I can bear to give it a whirl I'll report back on its effectiveness.

I was looking through my 1953 copy of Morgan & Lester's Leica Manual when I 
came across the mention of a "neckpod" in Eisenstaedt's chapter:  "... a fine 
item: a leather neck strap with a pocket supporting a wooden a wooden stick, 
screw threaded to fit the camera's baseplate. The neck strap fits in my 
pocket, and the stick is carried in my sock!"
    The sock thing not withstanding, this sounds like a great idea. Perhaps 
one our Lug-nuts will undertake its manufacture?
