To use with a tv you need a separate streaming device?
What do they expect you to use it with? A fridge freezer??

its nothing but a glorified bluetooth keyboard and an overpriced one at that. Looks nice but thats about it.

Still heat given for being the lowest price ive seen it at :)

If you want to play spectrum games, grab the emulator for androind, ios, pc whatever, connect a cheap keyboard and get the games from world of spectrum and enjoy.

Sounds like they expect you to use it with a separate streaming device.

Wasted opportunity this. Would have loved to see a true recreation where the emulator is built into the keyboard itself, ideally with all the games too (though evil fun spoiling copyright laws would never permit that). After all one of the best things about the original speccy is that it was a compact all in one system, yet here we are in 2016 needing two devices to do what the speccy could do on it's own. :(

I love retro stuff but only if it is well thought out and does a good job, neither of which seems the case with this....

Luckily I have several separate streaming devices, but it seems like a huge oversight not to have the option to use with a tv built in, even if it required a cable :/

just because you can recreate something from the past doesn't mean you should.

just read this

The Recreated ZX Spectrum is already unlocked, so you don't need to unlock it within the Recreated ZX Spectrum app if you wanted to use it as a regular keyboard / wanted to use it with other ZX Spectrum online games and programs.

Please note that the App is no longer available for this on the App Store, Play Store or online - you may not be able to find the games to play - leaving you with a very cool retro bluetooth keyboard! Please do take note of this before purchasing!!

Also its £39.77 on amazon delivered via this link

https://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Recreated-Sinclair-ZX-Spectrum/dp/B00SXCJYYA/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A25WPMOCMNBNW8

So actually its a cold deal. can i have my heat back please ?

If there is a market for it - why not?

I think the only viable way to produce this kind of device is to secure sufficient pre-orders & then go for it - it will never establish itself in the contemporary world as an item for mainstream consumption and if that is the aim of the manufacturer, it is bound to fail.

I always used to fantasize about owning an original Atari 800xl again, so I went to the bother about 3 years ago of buying an old style TV set, then the Atari itself, and finally, a device to load disk images from SD cards. All was going dandy until the RAM chips in the Atari started to fail and the poor old computer packed in and would only boot to the main screen - I was gutted, silly old sod that I am. Yet while the computer was working, I had such fun, just for the basic indulgence of revisiting & resurrecting an atmosphere from my youthful days.

To be honest though, unless a device could be 99.999 % accurate to the original experience, I would have little interest and I would prefer the innards to be the same, chip-set, board, the lot - with enhanced audio/visual output options.

The ZX Spectrum when compared to the Atari or C64 is very primitive nowadays, so perhaps your statement holds its ground to a degree... whereas Dropzone on Atari, is proficiently designed and has a timeless quality:

Dropzone - lovely lovely Dropzone

​This looks great, I think they've missed a trick though; They should've called it "Spectrum ZexT" (Z ex T) but with the Z rotated a bit so it looks like a 'N' :)

Why anyone would produce a gaming device without a video out of some form is beyond me. There's no wonder it's flopped really.

I guess they're going to make a retro toaster next; but it won't come with a heating element...

Shopped with 365 games for the first time last week and it'll be the last time! Worst company ever, it's the first time I've had a problem with an online retailer,you expect to get a new sealed uk copy but I got a unsealed Australian copy,the case was cheap and flimsy full of holes that's been cut out, shop with them at your own risk.

There is the ZX UNO

As mentioned above = http://www.specnext.com/ = this is the way to go.
Not that I'll be investing, as the games are too dated for my taste now... better left as golden memories :(
