An Arduino And An Enigma All Rolled Into One via Hackaday

I got to lay hands on an original WWII Enigma machine years ago at the National Cryptologic Museum near Washington, DC. Seeing a simulator like this brings back some interesting memories and gives more people the opportunity to see how this historic piece of technology functioned.. — Douglas
 

This hacker has been wanting to design an Enigma machine simulator for a while, but didn’t take the leap until they realized there was a compact Arduino with a surplus of I/O.

The logs go through all sort of variations on the machine. Everything from a plug board variation similar to the original to a 16 segment LED tester are covered. In one of the posts you can even see it decode a real U-Boat message.
