Sinclair’s ZX Spectrum is coming back as a retro gaming console

Sir Clive Sinclair earned his knighthood by building some of the earliest affordable computers for the home back in the 1980s. One of his best-loved machines was the ZX Spectrum — think of it as the UK equivalent of the Commodore 64 — which is now being recreated by an Indiegogo project endorsed by Sir Clive himself. The new Sinclair Spectrum Vega simplifies the original keyboard into a rectangular gamepad and comes preloaded with 1,000 games for the Spectrum. What’s more, you can use an SD card to load up old Spectrum games you still have lying around, and the company behind the project, Retro Computers, promises to iteratively release more free games once the console is out.
