Pocket Enigma Machine

The Enigma machine was the cipher machine used to encrypt and decrypt secret messages by the Nazi Germany during WWII. Allied cryptologists working in Bletchley Park in the UK were eventually able to break the cipher, which provided significant information and may have hastened the end of the war by at least two years.  While newer encryption technology is now used, you can own a little bit of history with the Pocket Enigma machine
Designed exclusively for and only available through Bletchley Park, Pocket Enigma is a little cipher machine with a single wheel that rotates on the CD mount in a compact disk case. It works on exactly the same principles as the real Enigma machine used by the German armed forces during WW II.
If you get two, you and your girl geek could exchange secret messages that almost no one would be able to decipher.
