Travel back to the 1980's with this original Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2 converted to work as a fully functional USB keyboard.

Inside I have a controller board running my custom software which transforms the Spectrum's keyboard into a USB keyboard. This will work anywhere a normal USB keyboard would, most laptop and desktop PCs, Macs, and some tablets. No software is required to run on the PC end, just plug in and go.

The two options available are the original gray Spectrum +2, and the later black Spectrum +2A / +2B. Apart from the colour, the later black units has a more fully mappable keyboard. There are some limits to the key mappings of the extra keys on the left of the keyboard on the original gray units.

The tape unit is supplied non-functional. It could be converted to play audio cassettes, or removed to install a raspberry pi behind a window. Contact me if you are interested in these variants. Also I can add a USB joystick controller board which will use the two original 9 way D connectors to allow any Commodore / Atari style joysticks to be used with your PC. Again, contact me or click 'raise a custom order' above.

I repair and refurbish a lot of classic 1980's computers, but every now and then, I get ones that cannot be repaired economically. This is a way of giving them a new life. I only make these from dead computers, no working Spectrum's were harmed in the making of these keyboards!

Please note ,these are built to order, and the original units are 30 years old, so there may be the odd mark or scratch, but nothing too bad.

These are only available in the UK only, due to size limits of the postal service.

Other computers are listed in my shop, and I hope to list more in the future, please contact me for further information or requests.
