It&rsquo;s a plug-and-play console that hooks into your TV and claims to offer at least 1,000 classic ZX Spectrum games built in, with room to download more over time.</p> <p>And it&rsquo;s all but certain to be fully funded at this point. The campaign went live on Monday and has already raised more than &pound;76,000 on a goal of &pound;100,000, with almost two months left in the campaign. Sir Clive Sinclair himself and Retro Computers are behind the new product, and &pound;100 now will get you the Limited Edition unit come spring.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sinclair-zx-spectrum-vega">Indiegogo</a> via <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/12/02/zx-spectrum-vega-indiegogo/">Engadget</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/100-best-gadgets-ever-silicon-age/feature">100 Best Gadgets Ever: The Silicon Age</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CN8aDkgqHn4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> DC’s Suicide Squad gets major cast </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Following Marvel&rsquo;s immense success with a superhero shared universe, DC is pushing hard to get its biggest and brightest characters together as quickly as possible. <em>Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice</em> will kickstart things in March 2016, and now <em>Suicide Squad</em> will pull together several notable villains a few months later - with a standout cast in tow.</p> <p>Jared Leto will play the Joker, Will Smith will take the role of Headshot, and Tom Hardy (who portrayed Bane in the last <em>Dark Knight</em> flick) is set to take on Rick Flag, with Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne in other roles. David Ayer (<em>End of Watch</em>) is set to direct.</p> <p><em>Suicide Squad</em>, based on the comic series that&rsquo;s spanned multiple volumes, spotlights a team of top villains offered one last chance to redeem themselves by the government - by completing a special mission that&rsquo;s unlikely to return them alive. Sounds like DC&#39;s best shot to have an edgy competitor to Marvel&#39;s <em>Guardians of the Galaxy</em>, and it&#39;s planned to debut on 5 August 2016.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://variety.com/2014/film/news/suicide-squad-cast-revealed-jared-leto-to-play-the-joker-will-smith-is-deadshot-1201368867/">Variety</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/avengers-infinity-war-two-parter-leads-marvel-s-latest-round-film-announcements/news">Avengers: Infinity War two-parter leads Marvel&rsquo;s latest round of comic book film adaptations</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Suicide Squad" alt="Suicide Squad" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/dc-suicide-squad.jpg?1417672124" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Learn coding with Google&#039;s Santa Tracker </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Google is pretty serious about <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/google/google-s-made-code-initiative-encourages-young-girls-learn-coding/news">teaching kids programming skills</a>.
