  • 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.

  • Sexting with that thing must've been incredibly frustrating

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

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

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

  • 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

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

  • 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....

  • "Yoink, that's mine"

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

  • Dear Dr Turing ,

  • And just think that Polish scientists broke the code.

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

  • The Nazis ripped off the Enigma from Dota 2.

  • Amazing how an online history lesson was able to more effectively and efficiently teach me about factorials and how to solve equations containing such functions than my advanced algebra course in high school.

  • 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.

  • It was the Polish mathematicions Jerzy Rozycki, Henryk Zygalski and Marian Rejewski who cracked the code which were passed on to Alan Turing in Bletchley Park. Once again, the Poles were overlooked in their participation in WW2 the same as their Squadron 707 during the Battle of Britain.( snubbed by Stalin). BTW Jon Bon Jovi and Harvey Keitel had nothing to do with capturing one of these as Hollywood likes to portray.
