NORC control console

NORC control console
Shown here is NORC's control console. Switches could be used to start and stop the machine and to modify the written program. In normal operation, NORC proceeded automatically -- without control by the operator -- according to instructions recorded on magnetic tape. Any number or instruction in NORC could be shown on the faces of cathode ray tubes (seen at left). Selected portions of the program could also be examined in slow motion through that display.
