make your own e-cryptex!
so john is all obsessed with cryptexes now (or is it crypteces?). i made him a little one for easter, but apparently that has not satisfied his lust for da vinci-inspired code breaking receptacles. there is a website
where you can buy handmade cryptexes, but they cost 600+ dollars. i don't get it. i mean they are kind of pretty maybe but do you think anybody has ACTUALLY ever paid this dude 600 bucks for what really amounts to a metal combination lock tube in a cherry wood box? john, i wouldn't hold your breath come christmas time. . .
but it doesn't even matter anymore, because john's cryptex lust has finally been satisfied by this amazing site. if you go to webcryptex.com
, you can create your own electronic crytex and send it to a friend. effing sweet! so now we don't have to worry about google or the cia interrupting our email correspondence. i am going to encode all my internet messages in crytex form so that noone can read them except those for whom they are intended.Click here
for a message i have hidden inside a cryptex for anyone savvy enough to break the code.
