Historical Technology Books - 74 in a series - Cipher and secret letter and telegraph code, with Hogg's improvements (1884)

 

INTRODUCTION

This Secret Code may be used by any oue. It is so perfect that no message written by it can possibly be read without knowing the particular keyword us3d. In most of the Cipher systems a mere changing of the order of the alphabet, or certain signs for certain letters, has been used, and in consequence of the same letter being always represented by the same cipher, an expert could easily read any message. In this system the constant change ot cipher for every letter makes the message perfectly secret. By its use any number of persons may write the same message, and each be unintelligible save for those intended. It is very simple, and with ordinary care there can be no mistake or misunderstanding. Your message can be written in any language.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
