I haven’t really had any good ideas come into my head, so I came up with this:

I would like to design a device that could be worn on the person’s body as a wrist watch or head band or something like that. This device would assist musicians or vocalists stay in the same key as the music is written in. The device would be programmable so you could change the key to whatever the music is written in.
The way that this would work is that when a musician/vocalist is playing/singing in key, the device would remain dormant, but when the device detects a note is out of the programmed key, an electrical shock is transmitted into the user’s body. Obviously an electrical shock would encourage the musician to stay in key. The device would give shocks in incremental levels. The first mistake made by the musician would result in a level 1 shock, followed by level 2, then the device would double the shock strength to 4 then 8 then 16 and so on. If the user was a very poor musicain, the device would eventually kill them, and this would be a good way to “weed out” the really bad musicians/vocalists.
