  • The Nazi's Enigma Machine - and the mathematics behind it - was a crucial part of World War II. Flaw video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4V2bp... More links & stuff in full description below ↓↓↓ Brown papers on ebay: bit.ly/brownpapers Dr James Grime demonstrates the machine and discusses its many configurations. James' "day job" is touring with the Enigma machine - he could even visit you - see more at http://enigma.maths.org/content/proje...

  • One more problem: translate from German to English

  • As a side note, this machine been there for over 80 years and can still be used. That's German manufacturing quality.

  • It's so fun to watch people talk about things they're passionate about :)

  • Sexting with that thing must've been incredibly frustrating

  • the click the machine makes when you press a button is highly satisfying

  • Interesting how wars can make people invent really unimaginable stuff....

  • personally id find this number "158,962,555,217,826,360,000" a lot more fascinating......if it were the balance in my bank account....

  • I just got back from watching The Imitation Game, and it's such a fun coincidence that I find this video now.

  • i wonder what the germans will invent for the next major war

  • And just think that Polish scientists broke the code.

  • Dear Dr Turing ,

  • I watched this vid two years ago. Just now finished watching imitation game and returned to view this a second time

  • It would be interesting to build this in software and expand it to 8 rotors with 1024 contacts.

  • There's something weird about your facial structure, you're so fascinating to look at.

  • "Yoink, that's mine"

  • "the polish, the british and the americans"

  • The Nazis ripped off the Enigma from Dota 2.

  • WD 

    It still blew my mind when he typed the code back in to write Numberphile. That's super cool.

  • This is what the movie "The Imitation game" is about

  • That Polish Mathematician was Marian Rejewski, he acted as a spy for a couple years, hid from the Nazi Party, broke the Enigma Machine and after all that lost some of his best Mathematician friends who were trying to escape the war. He is truly an un-song hero, and without him, I am certain we would have lost the war. The more remarkable thing is that there was multiple versions of the enigma machine throughout the war, and Marian and his colleagues broke them all.
