Has to be a fake datasette deck, there's no wee screwdriver in shot to align the playback head!
Man, back before the 1000 model made specialized datasette decks obsolete by using regular acoustic decks.
Lead to1st GPS use on yacht by "apkallus" Sir Sinclair, then wrested from the military-industrial complex.
general consensus from the Brits is look to the left for a keyboard. Thats the speccy not this deck ;)
Boy, I remember that thing .. now I feel really old :(
The British high street chain were given exclusive retail rights for the ZX81's initial release period.
This is a WH Smith Computer Program Data Recorder. This was released as a peripheral for the ZX81.
Shall I go all Uber Geeky & say it looks like a 16k or 48k rubber key Spectrum PSU, not a later + version?
EeeeeeeeeeeeWEET EeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeWeeweweweweeeewewewewewe.... I'm tearing up now.
blimey @aptanet took the words out of my mind
Looks more like a tape deck that would hook up to a speccy 48k before they got built into the 128ks
Looks more like a tape deck to me, but the PSU next to it looks like a Spectrum one so probably connected!
One day this will be more "antique" then we'd like it to be.
