Is it possible to redirect PI console output so that I can view the output on another PC/laptop?

As the PI does not have a serial port, is there an alternative approach I can use that does similar to this step in the Linux Serial Console howto?

Optional: Configure serial port as THE system console

After some more research, I have found that it is possible to redirect console output on the PI using some hardware that connects to the GPIO.

You could also use this serial Bluetooth module.
