While searching around on the net I found these at this site...

https://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/176 ... clair-zx81

But there is no info on what they are.

They look like some kind of ZX81 clone with an old PC game port interface.

I'm wondering if they are just keyboards.... Perhaps used for something other than zx81... The D connector has enough pins for it just to be the keyboard matrix. An interesting find anyway.

Yes, my thinking is along the same lines as Andy's comments.

A ZX81 membrane makes a very convenient keyboard that can be used for other applications.
