Jeff Vavasour wrote a Java based emulator for one of the first computers I ever owned. His is for the Timex/Sinclair 1000. Basically a ZX81 with an additional 1K of memory onboard for a whopping 2K of RAM! ;)

I had a brand spanking new Sinclair ZX81 fresh off the boat from the UK with the wobbly 16k memory pack and sinclair printer in the VERY early 80's. Up until the point I finally had one in my hands I had been trying to teach myself BASIC from books from Creative Computing and Radio Shack. I wanted a TRS80 Model 1, but would have to wait another year or so before I could finally afford a used one.

This was the very first real computer I owned...
and now, it's a JAVA based emulator..

enjoy!

check it out, he has some programs you can "load" into the emulator and play. :)
