Due to some minor obstacles in my life spelled holiday, playing in sleazy bars, women & more, I havent been so active here in the forum last week.
On the other hand, I've been doin some serious thinking and product design.
Since the failure with SSIS (Staffays Smelling Internet Service), I've been looking into new business ideas.
(As a side-note, I've been also very upset that all cool competitions are only open for american citizens, so I decided to do a design by myself on a completely else topic)

As some of You may know, a friend of mine is doin an awesome piece of software called "Amazing Slowdowner" in order to transcribe music. This gave me the idea to make the reverse - eg. what we guitar-players wanna do is to play FAST, not slow. So with this in mind, I designed the pedal shown below, the fantastic thing about this one, is that You dont actually have to LEARN anything else than mimic to the phrases played by the pedal. Of course no one gonna notice this since the frame-rate on Youtube is far below the speed this gear will perform with anyway....
Below is a brief description of what it does.

AMAZING SPEEDUPPER

Features:
* Plays Your phrases up to 12 times faster, just tap the tempo of the song and then hit "play".
* Recording function of Your own phrases.
* Huge library with all Yngwies phrases in harmonic minor (actually there is only three...) Paul Gibert pentatonics, Jason Becker sweeps in a tempo so fast that You even cant recognize the chord played (which is good since you can use them in all 12 keys), Van Halen tapping, John Petrucci licks and much more.
* Especially added girl-friend connectors that will motivate the prize for her when You gonna buy it. You can connect the hair-dryer, vacuum cleaner and even a vibrator. (on purpose I left the description of this function out)
* Rocket function. This have auto-tracing with three modes:
a) Hits the drummer.
cool.gif Hits the most annoying guy in the audience.
c) Hits the club-owner.
None of them will be able to do their job again in at least 6 months....
* No hazzles with cables. The unit operates on a PPC module. (Plutonium Power Unit) This gives enough power to even fire off the rocket up to 100 times without switching the cell. However I have some problems to get them produced in Iran, so I may turn to China instead.
* USB interface that actually does improves anything - but as in all other products nowadays, it MUST have such a connector. Its pure fashion!
* Electrocute function that gives momentarily shocks (10.000 V) to the bass-player and singer when they play/sing the wrong notes. WARNING: When using this function for more than 1.5 second, ambulance may be needed.

This is basically what it does, if You guy's have any additions, improvements or tips. Please comment. I know for sure that Jafo-industries may have some sharp ideas.

Btw. a video demo is coming soon.

Orders will be accepted as soon as I find a method to ship it overseas without any customs authorities/police yelling bout terrorism and I have tested out the robot on my former girlfriend. (the one who still owes me 1300 EUR for a mobile phone bill)

Hmm, that might be difficult... maybe we need a face-scanning function here, so we can trace the person to be nuked when the E-chord is played ??? It should'nt be an E anyway, its better with a G#major 11 with sharp 5, its never gets played anyway - so for secure reasons I really suggest this one. biggrin.gif
