Just wondering as technology has progressed so much since the Z88's launch If anyone has figured out or found an aftermarket device to offer a display out?
I know the Z88 itself doesn't offer much in expandability, but just wondering.

Good evening Seeker,

I have not yet tried it out, but the following site has software you can download to your PC and use this as a gateway to a monitor.

An FPGA version of the Z88 is being developed, and also a core if this work for the spectrum next / n-go

It will work with a VGA monitor at a 600x400 aspect ratio I believe.

Apart from that, the answer is no.
