- Paper tape reader / punch
- Card reader / punch
- Peripherals for the NORD-1, like drum memory or NCR 655 disk drive.

Some of my ND projects beside this wiki
- Get the NORD-1 up and running
- Get a satellite up and running and connect it to the internet.
- Make a ND media reader to read old ND-media (floppies, disks, tapes)
- Make an extension to linux to be able to mount SINTRAN III partitions
- Document scanning project, an effort of documenting, finding and scanning all the manuals ND made.
- Make a more comprehensive List of product numbers now when we know of so many more products than when the wiki started.
I made a brief showing at a local lan, Frostbyte 2013, with some of my computers, among other a ND-110 with a notis terminal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIMtinBfVOc
- Many fasteners are DZUS quarter turn quick lock. One source of these are Aeromateriel
