Retro Homebrew Z80 Computer Kit

RC2014 is a range of homebrew computer kits based on cutting edge technology from the late 1970s / early 1980s.  Featuring the Z80 CPU (The same CPU that your ZX Spectrum used), these kits are not only a fun electronics project to solder together, but are great to code in BASIC or Z80 assembly language.

The larger kits also run CP/M, allowing you to relive exciting games of the 80s, such as Zork, WordStar or Fortran. Several models will be on display at Liverpool MakeFest, illustrating what they can do, how they work, and some of the options for expansion.  A limited supply of kits will be available to purchase on the day, or the full range can be found on the Tindie website.
