Can you further qualify "intelligence amplifier"?

I imagine a concoction of chemicals that when consumed by
already-smart people, makes them more likely to have periods of highly
lucid creativity and focused output towards a goal.  This too would be
worth a fortune, but does not scale as well as computer hardware due
to the relative scarcity of already-smart people.  :)
