The Sinclair ZX Spectrum turns 30!

St. George

Happy Birthday ZX Spectrum!

Today Google UK  dedicates the daily doodle to  the 30th birthday of the ZX Spectrum.

I am part of that generation that learned to love computers/programming playing games like Manic Miner on an 8-bit little console with rubbery keys. The machine was so simple and ingenuous that you could get the entire schematic at a single glance and you could literally know every single line of code in the BASIC rom.

My tribute  to that lost (romantic?) era: an emulator for the PIC32 written entirely in C from scratch that runs the original games in almost real time (a bit faster actually) on a Mikroe Multimedia  Board.
