Wow, look at the funding on ZX Spectrum Next!
What would an Apple II Next look like, and would it get a similar backing?
I currently have two ZX Spectrum clones. Not Russian clones but clones made from the reverse engineering Chris Smith did of the ULA chip. Nowadays, we have a 100% cycle accurate clone using 74 logic chips of the ZX Spectrum. We have new injection molded cases you can buy. New rubber keyboards. New face plates. And new keyboard ribbon cables.
So, technically, you can now build a 100% cycle accurate ZX Spectrum using ALL NEW PARTS. That's pretty amazing. I wished other vintage computers could say the same. But, the simplicity of the Speccy is why this is possible.
