tapping your fingers on a desk and alternating the starting finger with each new set of four.
Listening to music and trying to guess the key the guitarist is in.
Play a solo on air guitar but to play it as iff you were actually playing the song.

Stretch your hands a lot, or do chord formations using your other hand as the neck of the guitar. Tap your pinky a lot.

If you listen to music that has syncopated parts & breakdowns and such. Try to follow the pattern in your head.

Twiddling a pen or pencil between your fingers as fast as you can without dropping it is a good way to improve you hand-eye co-ordination.
#22
As a serious answer, the grip-master does help, if you do it correctly it will help speed, otherwise if you do it wrong you'll strengthen the wrong muscles and it will make you slower. Also, typing helps with your coordination and accuracy with patterns (like when you type words over and over, like sadsadsadsadsadsad or jkloljkloljkloljkloljklol)

I think there was something called a shred neck or something and it's basically a mini guitar neck so you can practice your fretting hand technique.
