We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

The Recreated ZX Spectrum

Kickstarter product from the company Elite, who for many years published games with great success on the original machine, that recreated the ZX Spectrum very closely indeed, and added modern features such as bluetooth to hook up to modern tablets and phones etc.

There was to be an online store to add games to the device, which is a closed system, but a row over unpaid royalties, and licensing problems meant this part of the project went unfulfilled.

The keyboard was hacked, and a way found for games to be added to it.

Technically this is just a bluetooth keyboard and not an actual computer.

Manufacturer: Elite
Date: 17th September 2015
