I know a lot of sophisticated ideas have been suggested already, but if you just use a first order all pass filter and smoothly adjust the coefficient between -1 and 1, you can smoothly interpolate between an inverted and non inverted signal (with a 1 sample delay in the middle). If your goal is just to "do something interesting", that might get you somewhere.
