Description

The object name is embossed in Russian on the object and has also been recorded in English on a circuit diagram found with the object. The manufacturer's name is a cataloger-created transliteration of the Russian name recorded on a label attached to the object. Documentation found with the object indicates that it is a clone of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K computer and that it runs BASIC. On the back of the object is an on/off button and 7 connectors. The connectors appear to interface with a power plug (possibly 5V), a floppy diskette (contains 40 pins), a printer (16 pins), a video monitor (7 pins), and 3 unknown connectors (2 with 7 pins and 1 with 5 pins). All of the connector labels are in Russian. The keys are all labeled in English, and appear to match Sinclair keyboards of the same era.
