Default what kind of brewing gadget would you like to see?

As an avid tinkered with access to a lot of useful tools and machines ive been wondering what I can make to better the homebrew world. So I open it up to you..my fellow homebrewers. What are some thing you would like to see made? Anything you want to see produced? Maybe a cheaper alternative? Maybe a more practical version? Or just something you have thought about while brewing that you wish was available...or even something you have made that you would like to try to market?

I've always wanted to see a clear conical. Probably no market but, you asked.

A heat and food rated rotary hand pump (or will attach to a drill) that is cheap (under $30) and easy to clean and can move liquid at a gallon per minute.

Oh, and a documented photo of a chupacabra...

I would like to have a cheap, flexible glycol wrap to use on fermentors... Carboys, Better Bottles, 5 & 10 Gallon Cornies, and Conicals. A nice compact self-contained glycol chiller and pump would be great too.

My LHBS had something like this and it worked on my kettle. I used it in combination with whirlpooling on my last batch, and it worked perfectly.

A 3 kettle system (either horizontal or tiered) that could be easily and safely vented with tubing via an air exchanger allowing for safe basement brewing using propane.

If ur gonna brew in the basement use your natural gas line. It burns cleaner and its easier and save to use indoors...they make exhaust systems for it...but I can make you a brew stand if you want

I want a spring hinge that has an adjustable assist for my chest freezer that opens to 90 deg. One that can be adjusted so that it is easy to lift a collar with the taps attached. The real kicker is that it goes to 90 deg so it's easy to lift kegs/buckets out instead of the stock hinges that only go to about 60 deg and force me to tip my kegs/buckets.
