The original ZX Spectrum is practically a UK institution -- one of the most successful computer products ever to hail from this sceptred isle. It's only fitting, then, that the 21st century makeover is going to be manufactured here too.
The new Spectrum, dubbed the Vega, is a microconsole update to the classic computer, designed with a games-first focus and capable of playing the more than 24,000 games released on the machine. Units will be made by Nottingham-based SMS Electronics.
Following the machine's announcement in December, a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo has attracted £136,746 in backing. It was originally asking only £100k -- a figure it hit in under three days -- and currently has two weeks of funding left.
