Enigma machine / Tom MacWright / Observable
Love this live demo of an Enigma Machine that follows the passage of each letter's encryption through the circuits of rotors, reflector and pegboard. It's a visual abstraction, but it makes it entirely clear what's going on, from key to lamp.

And: it's an Observable notebook, so it's editable and interactive! Ace.
