Buy a massive cryptex built by Mythbusters Answered

Want to buy a massive cryptex? What if it was made by the Mythbusters team? Well now's your chance as this huuuuge 13' long and 6' tall device. Bids are being accepted via eBay and the proceeds go to the EFF. The only catch is that you need to pick it up in person in San Francisco.

Hey, wait a second... our office is in San Francisco. I need to go and talk to Eric.

eBay auction via Make


Tomorrow's The last day of the auction!

wait... how does that work ?

It works different than a 'normal' cryptex and it's not really clear how it works when you look at it, so you can't look it up on Google. But I think this Cryptex doesn't work so well because you can look inside it

Ummmm....who's your friend? Is Google your friend? Yes it is! Google is your friend! Oooh, what a good friend Google is!

Where's the "burn" GIF when you need it? Presumably this is a machine for performing Caesar cyphers.. it's a shame they are the easiest sort to crack. Does someone want to invent a machine that does Vigenere cyphers?

Pay extra so the mythbusters autograph it!

Oh man, you don't even know how much I would pay for that.

this is awesome!!!!!! when do Adam and Jamie ever have time and space to do this? Its huge, and the actual work area where its in is tiny!

You could put a body in there! ... ... ... ideas.....
