I have a puzzle set by the science Museum about the work of Alan Turing and I am stuck on one question-- Can you help (No prizes- just a game)

If you clink on the link

http://turinggame.sciencemuseum.org.uk/

It will give you the info to start the game (you need to register to get your passcode- FREE

The answers I have so far are: (for the word puzzle)

BOMBE;ACE;ENGIMA;LORENZ;SIGSALY;DELILAH

These are all early projects involving Alan Turing, however I cannot find the name of the Modern computer that used his research.

Can you Help.

Thanks

Thanks Woolwell

I went through all the different coded systems from the 1940's, 1950's-1960's and checked the names of the projects, I never thought of using Computer.

It shows that some things are staring you in the face and you just cannot see them.
