Computer Magic with the ZX-81 by David Hambly

The next time you download the latest and greatest magic app to your smart phone remember that it all started with this. This booklet is to the best of my knowledge the first publication on magic with a computer (published by Martin Breese in 1983). In this case the legendary Sinclair ZX-81 with the whooping memory of 1K.

The author addresses how one can use the ZX-81 during a magic performance. It includes numerous programs in the Basic programming language. The magic effects are not that great to be honest, but David Hambly was breaking new ground.

If you remember Basic with its GOTO, GOSUB and PEEK and POKE you will get a kick out of reading the little programs supplied in this ebook.
