The #a2pico is a small expansion board for the Apple IIe bus that I'm developing. It's primarily a learning project for me so I can out the odd corners of the RP2040 microcontroller. It has a USB upstream connection, and can in theory emulate almost any expansion card, halt the processor, do DMA transactions, etc.
A very unusual thing about my approach is that the REPL is just continuously projecting the live objects, not making some kind of copy for inspection purposes... which means the "history" can be altered by mutating objects that you've previously interacted with. IMO having a live inspector as an option is useful and good, but the UX of putting it in a REPL is definitely surprising.

Fast message passing with Rust-like semantics to borrow, mutably borrow, or move pages between processes... enforced using the read-only, read-write, or remapping of pages between processes."
"The design of the Bank of England's new £50 note, featuring the computer pioneer and codebreaker Alan Turing, has been revealed.
The banknote will enter circulation on 23 June, which would have been the mathematician's birthday."
