Papercraft Enigma

This has been doing the rounds on Twitter but I thought I’d show off my own attempt.

UK security firm Franklin Heath have put together an Enigma machine made out of paper. This really goes to show that Enigma is not a complex beast at all and you can make your own with some printouts and a handy Pringles tube. The result really works and could be used to decode any Wehrmacht Enigma message encyphered on a real machine (and vice versa).

Not a bad deal considering a real Enigma will cost you upwards of £150,000!

Go on, make your own
