Shamelessly stolen from Isegoria, who has a great WWII sniper story.

Amazing, and not the Lego bit - the mechanism is jaw-dropping.

Speaking of awesome, did you see this?

THIS is the blackhole of awesome you fell out of, Borepatch.
If I'd known how amazing math and astronomy were, I'd have paid more attention in school....wait. I took home ec. I suck.

Given the ww2 sniper reference and all, my first inclination was to think . . . someonebuild a German Enigma device out of lego. I must say this is FAR more impressive. Thanks . . . and I know plenty of geeks with whom to share this gem.

It isn't so much that they reproduced it in Legos (although I li that part just the same) but that someone recognized it as interesting, and that it was reverse-engineered from the CTs. In any case I'm impressed, a lot.
