Description of Enigma Machine
Enigma Machine for. Enigma Machine is a faithful digital recreation of the famous Enigma cipher machine used by the German forces during second world war. Click "More..." to read on. The Enigma is based on a combination of mechanical rotors, switches, lamps, a typewriter keyboard and a plug board. It is therefore a so called electro-mechanical device. We have recreated the functionality of the Enigma by emulating the mechanical movement and sounds of the keyboard and rotors. In addition our Enigma also features the so called “Schreibmax” which is a printer which prints the ciphered text on a small paper strip, much like a ticker tape. For educational purposes the paper strip in this emulation not only shows the ciphered text, but also the clear text which has been entered via the keyboard..
