Hut 8

Within the renovated Hut 8, Clay have created five interactive exhibits that explore some of the advanced codebreaking techniques employed at Bletchley Park during the war.

Using large-format tabletop touchscreens, lifesize documents and paperwork come to life, allowing visitors to explore topics such as how the German Enigma enciphering machine works, or how sliding pieces of paper on top of each other helped codebreakers find weaknesses in wartime transmissions.

In one room, four multi-user tabletops use large-scale projections and arrays of touch sensors to reproduce popular games, using gameplaying analogies to explore the mathematical properties of codebreaking techniques.
