Own a Fully Functional WWII Enigma Machine with “Open Enigma”

For those interested in WWII history or cryptology, one item that still carries with it an air of mystique and awe is the German Enigma Machine. Well, now you can own or make your own!

The electro-mechanical rotor cipher Enigma machines used by the Germans were once considered unbreakable until Allied forces reverse-engineered it allowing them to read top secret Axis correspondence.

Now teachers, history buffs and crypto fans can own their very own fully functional Enigma machine!

Check out the open source, Arduino based “Open Enigma Project” a KickStarter project by S&T Geotronics:

So cool!
