a pedal company that only does mods to commercial pedals, trying to turn them in to ''swedish chainsaw'' sounds.

[the thread title doesn't insist on it being a good idea you want to have stolen]

A pedal called the "Ever Grounded", with a knob that looks like a ship getting stuck in a canal when you turn it up.

a wah/expression pedal that is made with a model ship and a fish tank.
pushing it to the bottom with your feet, or letting it float back up, to change the resistance.
fill the tank with windex and use a resistive strip as variable resistance, where the windex is the wiper.

I'd love to see a "mood-dependent pedal" made. something that analyzes you state with some elctrodes and such and varies parameters according to your current mood. Could be made reversable, so you're feeling better when playing through the box. Or vice versa :)

Pretty much all pedals are like that, in my opinion ;)

Maybe this could be a lie detector pedal.  There is an input for skin resistance on a lie detector.  The disadvantage of this is that people might be able to figure out what you have been up to.  If your bandmate asks you using his microphone, "Did you sleep with that groupie last night?" and your wife is in the audience, the output had better not change or your wife will know the answer even if you don't answer.

Electrocardiography based tremolo/vibrato/autowah/phaser

so you have audio feedback of your heart rate, so you can play your music to your own heart beat!

Taking the best of a few other ideas here and voicing them over something entirely contrary, I came up with The BoJo.

It's a distortion with a subtle modulating effect blended into ambiguous re-timing that's entirely similar but not to be confused for extended delay.
It boasts an output of 2/4 timing but legally requires an input of 3/4 or greater.
Anything it considers a mistake it gates and replaces with sympathetic white noise.
If you play a jazz chord it'll halve the supply voltage and chortle to itself.
There's an optional 'sanction control' to adjust these features but you can't afford it.

The idea seemed plausible at first, though having riffed on it for a while it's quite apparent that no consumer would benefit from investing in one.
