BBC on the Sinclair ZX81, Looks Like a Cyberspace Deck

The BBC has a very nice article looking back at the introduction of the Sinclair ZX81 personal computer in the UK. The ZX81 is at the bottom basement of personal computing, but I can imagine, not having had one myself, that it would have been a very exciting introduction to computing. Also, I kind of imagine William Gibson’s Ono-Sendai Cyberspace 7″ from Neuromancer looking like the ZX81, but it would need trodes and an external battery.

Follow the link below for the BBC article, and under that, learn more about the ZX81 on Wikipedia.
