Re: I released my ZX81+35 ZX-81 clone design files on Github

I guess ultimately there is little point in any replicas at all - it’s not like the ZX81 is in any way rare or expensive :lol: (Jupiter Ace/ZX80 may make more sense).

Because nothing compares to a real Cherry Keyboard with ZX81 professional printed keycaps.

Re: [JupierACE] SDHC Card Interface

Just brilliant, I resorted to a tapeduino (though not had time to test it yet), but this solution makes the Ace much more useable (in the modern, I’ve got no time world).
