Den brittiske ingenjören och uppfinnaren Clive Sinclair har avlidit, uppger hans familj.

Sinclair tillverkade bland annat världens första räknemaskin i fickformat och var högst delaktig i utvecklingen av hemdatorer.

När hemdatorerna började spridas till svenska hem hette en av de mer populära modellerna ZX Spectrum.

Den med dagens mått beskedliga datorn, med ett ram-minne på 16 till 48 kilobyte, var en revolution när den kom 1982, inte minst för att den var betydligt billigare än till exempel Apples hemdatorer.
