The Imitation Game spent a lot of time showing Turing and his team working on a strange looking machine (known as a 'Bombe' or 'Bomb') in one of Bletchley Park's 'sheds'.Although the movie makes it clear that this clinking, blinking, whirling device was instrumental in breaking the Enigma code by calculating daily settings of the Enigma machines used by the German military, the movie audience.
They've got their hands on an actual Enigma machine smuggled out of Berlin but they don't know the machine's settings to decode messages. Every night at midnight, the Germans refresh the settings. Intercepting the first message every morning at 6 A.M., the code-breakers only have eighteen hours each day to crack their code before it changes and they must start from scratch.
The ENIGMA machine was developed by Albert Scherbius who iterated upon and refined the device through a series of patents. The German military used this machine in WWII to encrypt radio messages, while the counterpart used by the Allies was the U.S. SIGABA machine. The ENIGMA code was cracked by.Alan is welcomed to Enigma alongside five others including Peter Hilton, John Cairncross, Hugh Alexander, Keith Furman and Charles Richards. They've got their hands on an actual Enigma machine smuggled out of Berlin but they don't know the machine's settings to decode messages. Every night at midnight, the Germans refresh the settings.The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch as English mathematician and logician, Alan Turing. Turing helped crack the Enigma machine, a Nazi encryption device, by developing a code breaking machine which has come to be known as the computer.
During World War II, the English mathematical genius Alan Turing tries to crack the German Enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians.Read More

The Imitation Game, the latest movie based on World War II's Enigma machine is the first to acknowledge Alan Turing's crucial role. The Enigma machine was originally a commercial German encoding apparatus developed after World War I. It resembled a typewriter, but.Read More
Alan Turing may be the star of The Imitation Game, but the truly central figure in the film is Christopher.Named after Turing's childhood friend and first love, the machine not only breaks the.Read More
The Imitation Game suggests that only one woman - Joan Clarke - worked with Turing and his team on breaking Enigma. In fact, several women worked at Bletchley as top codebreakers. For example, Margaret Rock was a brilliant mathematician and statistician who joined Bletchley when she was in her mid-thirties, rather older than most of the women who were employed straight from school or university.Read More
THE IMITATION GAME follows Turing as he leads a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions, and intelligence officers in cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine, potentially saving millions of lives by helping to shorten the war.Read More

Cripps’ Enigma machine became the central attraction in the enormously successful exhibition and after it closed the device remained at Bletchley Park (“its spiritual home”) along with a handful of other loaned machines. A few times a year, however, Cripps takes the Enigma Machine back out of Bletchley Park to bring into schools.Read More
