NUSSE at Norsk Teknisk Museum

NUSSE (Norsk Universell Siffermaskin, Sekvensstyrt, Elektronisk) was the first Norwegian electronic computer.

It was constructed from 1950 through 1953 and unveiled at the University of Oslo in April 1954[1] to an enthusiastic reception. The machine is considered to have played an important role in developing the commercial use of computers in Norway.

The environment around the NUSSE computer was the birthplace of the AUTOKON CAD/CAM system, at one point in use in 80% of the world's ship yards.[citation needed]

The computer is now on exhibit at the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology.
