 [LISP] is usually run on a VirtualMachine, although modern [LISP] implementations can compile to MachineCode. At the time of its conception, [CPU]s were so slow that requiring a VirtualMachine made [LISP] infeasible as an implementation language for real world applications. It was therefore attempted to build processors that could run [LISP] directly - so called [LISP] machines. Like any other attempt to date to realize a certain VirtualMachine in hardware, [LISP] machines too failed to achieve any significance in the market and were soon forgotten.
