      Yes! I’ve seen an Enigma machine at a museum, and I’ve played a LARP that used an enigma style encryption that we had to break – tough, but really good fun.

      I have seen enigma machines, in two different museums and I’ve been to Bletchley Park and seen the buildings where they decoded the enigma code and the Bombe, which was one of the computers they used – it was as big as a room but phone is more powerful
