The Commodore 64 is one of the most iconic computers ever built and the C64's 21st-century rebirth is showing encouraging progress.

The prototype casing is created by a 3D plastic printer and the spec sheet obviously trumps those of the classic 64, with up to 4GB RAM, 1080p video output, Blu-ray, USB and Wi-Fi.

The best part? It will come preloaded with a heap of 8-bit gaming classics to indulge the nostalgia fanatics amongst us.
