    How much do you know about USB now? Do you know how the Host/Device communication protocol works? How device classes work? Where to start depends on where you are now.

    I've been thinking about how to harness the USB port for fun devices but considering root access and a custom kernel are requirements, the number of people you can reach is severely limited. Even if people are willing to void their warranties, many can't get the low-level access to do these types of changes.

    At any rate, if you are thinking about doing something anyway tell me what your knowledge and experience levels are and I can maybe steer you in the right direction. USB is a complex protocol but there are microcontrollers out there that can make life a little easier if you can find the right class drivers.
