Recreated ZX Spectrum now available to buy for that retro gaming fix

The Recreated ZX Spectrum is a reboot of the iconic home computer and here’s where you can buy the iOS and Android-friendly accessory from today

Gamers of a certain age will have fond memories of the 8-bit computer that first launched way back in 1982. That’s because it was one of the first true home computers that went on to sell more than 5 million units.

Invented by Sir Clive Sinclair, the Spectrum was recently resurrected via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and now the Recreated ZX Spectrum has landed with a few modern updates.
