Well this got my retrogaming excitement levels raging today.....

The Sinclair ZX Spectrum is going to get another reincarnation!

"The ONLY full-size recreation of the 1980s personal computer - The Sinclair ZX Spectrum"

Most recently there was the crowd-funded ZX Spectrum Vega which was a reimagining of the rubber keyed wonder computer.

The Vega seemed to split opinions though with some not liking the lack of full keyboard, because after all the rubber keyboard is what sticks in most peoples minds as being it's most distinguishable feature of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Now the recreated ZX Spectrum is literally using the same design as the original and then bringing the beautiful black box into the 21st century!

What's The Lowdown On This Retrogaming Giant Then?

For those keyboard fans don't worry another moment as I Can confirm that yes it will have those authentic rubber-key, play-control of games; classic and modern 

An app will be available by the name of ‘Recreated Sinclair ZX Spectrum’ for iOS & Android which will give access to the library of thousands of Speccy games from years gone bye. 

Using bluetooth technology you will be able to play the games on your TV, PC, Mac Smartphone or Tablet. It will be a truly portable speccy experience!

It supports ‘Apple AirPlay’ and ‘Google Chromecast’ too which also enables wireless streaming of what’s on the screen of a phone, tablet, Mac or PC to an HDTV

Who's Bringing This Legend Back?

Well the Speccy has been redesigned in the UK for those cool cats at Elite Systems. 

Elite are one of the UK’s oldest developers and publishers of computer and video games and a publisher of Sinclair ZX Spectrum games since 1984. 

Elite have been around since the start of the Spectrum story so it seems fitting that it is they who are involved with bringing us back this piece amazing hardware!
