Another oddball machine (I've only read about it and heard about it, never
worked on it)

  - The Nanodata QM-1, circa 1970, programmable at the nanocode level, to
quote: "was developed as a universal emulation engine for research into new
computer architectures" (Comp. Arch. and Organisation / J.P.Hayes). Perhaps
not so weird today when everbody throws <whatever> CPU design into an
FPGA/CPLD, but according to the book it was the first nanoprogrammable machine.
