Cultured ZX Spectrum returns

Many today’s players probably did not even hear it, but the 1982 ZX Spectrum was one of the first home computers to provide very primitive entertainment. Now this iconic device returns as Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega is a new version of a popular computer more than 30 years ago. The device has been significantly reduced, working with modern television receivers, and its functionality has been reduced. In essence, they are limited to games only, because Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega is a kind of console that will install about a thousand titles ever released on the original ZX Spectrum.

The creators of Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega have just launched their campaign on the -zx-spectrum-vega # home platform Indiegogo, thus collecting funds to start production. This goes well, as the campaign started just yesterday, and has already accumulated 86,000 pounds (a total of £ 100,000), so it can be assumed that this week will manage to raise the required amount. Some of the money collected will be donated to charity for a children’s hospital.

Device designers have a fully functional prototype and are now just waiting for funds to start mass production. The finished product will go on sale in April next year. The first 1000 people who pays £ 100 will receive a special limited edition new device.

Thousands of games are quite a lot, though it is worth mentioning that there is only a small part of the production that was created on the ZX Spectrum, as there were over 24,000 total.
