Lots of things I didn't know - but will make my life much easier - about the Chrome console API; tools for logging and debugging Javascript.

"Tux dresses up sinatra in a shell. Use it to interact with your helpers, view rendering and your app’s response objects. Tux also gives you commands to view your app’s routes and settings." Handy - will definitely be using that in future.

"Python has one. Ruby has one. Clojure has one. Now PHP has one too. Boris is PHP's missing REPL (read-eval-print loop), allowing developers to experiment with PHP code in the terminal in an interactive manner. If you make a mistake, it doesn't matter, Boris will report the error and stand to attention for further input." I use PHP increasingly little, but the lack of a REPL drives me insane. This looks... useful, at the very least.

SYSTEM OVERVIEW | special stage systems
Truly beautiful: a games console built around patchcords, in Eurorack format; the system exposed to the user, and directly manipulable. The direct manipulation of the physics is kind of brilliant, the more I think about it. Just wonderful.

Nintendo Almost Made a Knitting Add-On for NES - IGN
"A recently-surfaced 1980s brochure reveals that Nintendo nearly released a knitting add-on for the NES. Posted on the Facebook page of former Nintendo employee Howard Phillips, the brochure shows off the Nintendo Knitting Machine, a device that would have connected to the NES and allowed players to create and print their own designs." This would have been brilliant; I'm trying to imagine games with knit-out (as opposed to print-out) elements now.

"It's a debugger for web pages, like FireBug (for FireFox) and Web Inspector (for WebKit-based browsers), except it's designed to work remotely, and in particular, to allow you debug web pages on a mobile device such as a phone." Blimey. That's, um, remarkably useful. Duly noted.

Gamasutra - 2009's Dark Horse Console Launch: The Story Behind Zeebo
"No consoles are launching in 2009, right? Not so. Brazilian manufacturer Tectoy, most notable outside of South America for its long partnership with Sega and official distribution of its consoles in Brazil, will be releasing an entirely original product called Zeebo. Centered around downloadable games distributed only over a 3G wireless network, the console is designed for emerging markets..." and, even if it's not exactly powerful and the business model still seems sketchy, this could be really, really interesting.

Brendan O’Connor’s Blog - AI and Social Science » conplot - a console plotter
"This has to be the most quick-and-dirty data visualizer out there: I wrote an ascii art plotter script that takes a column of numbers on stdin and throws out a plot on your console." Oh, that's going to come in handy.

Softies on Rails: Script/console tip for the lazy
"Yes, that's an underscore character in front of the .collect. In irb (and hence, script/console), an underscore is a kind of global variable that holds the last result." I did not know that. Useful!

Utility Belt: Usage
"Utility Belt is a grab-bag of tricks, tools, techniques, trifles, and toys for IRB, including convenience methods, language patches, and useful extensions." Looks most handy, too; some stuff is OSX-only.

"Console is a Windows console window enhancement", and it's great - tabbed shells, multiple shells, decent input support, pretty. Much nicer than cmd.

Visor Console [Macintoshian Achaia]
Ugh! Linked in this thread... is a terminal hack for OSX that makes your console drop down *like a console in Quake3*. Sehr cool - and I'm very tempted by it...
