The Beginnings

In July, I found an excellent Enigma simulator for the Android platform and this got me thinking. Wouldn't it be something to have an Enigma simulator running in an arduino with a touchscreen. Once the shield has been mated to the arduino, it sort of resembles the actual machine.

Sure, a phone app is more practical, but this is a physical device can be interacted with, taken places, show around and be a conversation piece. It can even be powered away from a computer by using a 9V battery and a barrel jack plug. It even fits in a shirt pocket.

And this is how this got started...
