It Was 30 Years Ago TODAY – The ZX Spectrum – Dundee’s Second Favourite Export

Originally  released on 23/04/1982, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum was arguably (very arguably) the machine which inspired the home computer revolution in the UK and inspired a generation of owners to start making games.

Even Google is getting in on the act with a clever dual Google Doodle, celebrating St George’s Day, PLUS the far more important and significant ZX Spectrum day.

Manufactured by Timex in Dundee, the wicked black box of infernal magic is more or less directly responsible for the games industry in Scotland.

Happy 30th birthday Spectrum.
