Richard J. Dickinson, October 13, 1982.
The ZX Spectrum is an 8-bit personal home computer released in the United Kingdom in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd. It was manufactured in Dundee, Scotland.
Referred to during development as the ZX81 Colour and ZX82, it was launched as the ZX Spectrum by Sinclair to highlight the machine's colour display, compared with the black and white of its predecessor, the ZX81. The Spectrum was released as eight different models, ranging from the entry level with 16 KB RAM released in 1982 to the ZX Spectrum +3 with 128 KB RAM and built in floppy disk drive in 1987; together they sold in excess of 5 million units worldwide.
The Spectrum was among the first mainstream-audience home computers in the UK, similar in significance to the Commodore 64 in the USA. The introduction of the ZX Spectrum led to a boom in companies producing software and hardware for the machine. Some credit it as the machine which launched the UK IT industry which earned the founder of Sinclair Research Ltd, Clive Sinclair, a knighthood for "services to British industry".
This design patent shows of the perfectly retro style of the ZX Spectrum. The named inventor is Rick Dickinson who went on to design Alan Sugar's Amstrad computers too.
