    - An amp that comes standard with a cup holder

    - A "Bullet Time" machine for when the hard licks come up

    - A pair of discrete cybernetic hands that shred when trying out guitars in music stores

    - A mini Patriot missile system that can be set up on stage to automatically intercept incoming beer bottles, shoes, etc.

    Did I miss anything?

    Not equipment for me necessarily... But I think this would be a great replacement for my guitarist's amp.

    I would like every venue, even small pubs and clubs, to have a prompters box like some theatre stages have. Inside would be someone who knows our set intimately and can signal to me on all those occasions when I can't remember if the lead solo has been and gone yet, or if the middle eight (remember those, anyone?) is coming up now or after the next chorus. It's not that I'm forgetful particularly but I have a tendency to get carried away with it all and lose track of where we are in a number.
    Oh, and some kind of spring-loaded retractor for my instrument cable so I don't keep tripping over it all the time would be nice.
  10. I want all my gear to pack itself up, like George Jetson's car. At the end of the gig, I press a button, everything folds itself up, and all I have to carry is a little briefcase.

    Not built in, but you could stick it on a mic stand.

    Either that or just leave a few of them on the drum kit for the entire band.

    Drummers typically come from the service industry anyway, so they shouldn't have an issue with keeping the band stocked :bag:

    If you have a roll of duct tape, you have a cup holder. (But you still shouldn't put beverages on your amp...)

    +1000 this is the best idea yet. Now if they could just perfect those flying cars.

    This and this:

    Combine them into a single working unit and life is good.

    No, I hate that "drink on the mic stand" look.

    Now youre thinkin!

    A device that forces the crowd to clap on 2 & 4. You'd think a drum kit was enough....

    ^This...so much THIS!!!

    I've actually seen folks clap on the 1 & 3 when listening to "Flash Light." How can one hear those very pronounced clapping sounds in "Flash Light" and NOT clap on the 2 & 4?!?!:eyebrow::rollno::scowl::mad:
