Thank you Sir Clive Sinclair

Yesterday we said goodbye to a pioneer that probably got us to where we are now, Sir Clive Sinclair died at the age of 81.

Growing up the ZX Spectrum was the first experience of computing for many, Garry Aston Director at Caged Fish used to spend time with the pages of code. Look at where we are now..

An amazing list of inventions, The Spectrum, an affordable pocket calculator and the C5

I found out today he never used his inventions, instead of a calculator he always had a slide rule in his pocket, proper old school

“He released the ZX Spectrum 48K in 1982. Its rubber keys, tinny sound, and strange visuals didn’t hinder its development as a pivotal component of the British video game industry. In addition to Jet Set Willy, Horace Goes Skiing, Chuckie Egg, Saboteur, Knight Lore and Lords of Midnight, these much-loved games are now available in colour.”

Thank you Sir Clive
