Sometimes I dream too much, here's some of what comes out:

Triple headed fire poi with different coloured fuel mixes on each head. Might be possible (Do a search)

A fire-proof pocket on a shirt so I can casually put my breathing/eating stick in it as a party trick ubblol

A single very long chained poi with 2 sets of opposite direction spinning wicks. Think of the thing on weather stations that measure wind-speed and picture one on top of the other on fire on a length of chain. If it worked, would make spiral patterns along it's arc. Would be spun like the thing that Go-go tries to kill Uma Thurman in Kill Bill with.

A set of LED poi with red green and blue lights that can be set to different flashing patterns and mixes to represent all colours in different patterns. Controlled by a handset with buttons that would enable the twirler to change patterns or colours while twirling. Different patterns could loaded onto the poi from a PC via a USB cable and different patterns could be designed, previewed and saved on the computer. Rechargable

As discussed elsewhere, the double ended fire trident. 6 heads, one hand. booya

A pair of strap-on fire-tipped dragon wings that flap with shoulder movements.

A pair of fire tipped devil horns

A full fire-proof suit so I develop a series of wraps on every body part.

there's more but my mind wanders again umm

as far as weighted poi go I use my monkey fists covered in foil; looks pretty too.
But how about:
two mini meteors, like double staff but more dangerous
shortstaff in one hand, poi in the other
T-shaped wick at the end of staff or poi for prettier circles
comet fire poi which would have a specially weighted wick in an L shape with a weight at the corner of the L and then wicking along one or both lines.

more like variation on what there is than anything new but just curious

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.

Maaan, using a staff in one hand and a poi in the other makes you feel so drunk.
