iPad ZX Spectrum Emulator App

My entry for the 'Wallpaper of the Week #18' competition on the Paint.NET forum.

The theme was 'retro-gaming' and I chose to bring the first computer I ever owned into the 21st century. I present the ZX Spectrum Emulator App, for the Apple iPad.

This is, of course, completely fictional :)

The majority of the work is my own, completed in Paint.NET.
I painstakingly recreated the Speccy keyboard in an iPad style and then went on to recreate, from scratch, the first level of the 8-bit classic, Manic Miner.

The only things I borrowed were a couple of screenshots from the web to put in the little game-app icons at the bottom.

The download version is full 1920x1080 HD.

im looking for something with only 2 or three machines
can anyone help
the video was made using windows media player classic
it runs video at fullscreen resolution of 320x200 - you need to recapture this using camtasia studio or some other dreadful rubbish screen cast desktop to video program that ought to have been included as part of the driver for the VGA but if microsoft has no idea what the screen resolution or internet bandwidth is...
