Binary Encoded Rings
Rings with personalized messages encoded in binary.
Binary code is a way of representing numbers using a pair of symbols (like
1 and 0 or ON and OFF) in a string. The placement of the symbol in the
string determines its value, just like the decimal place of the digits in
our normal counting numbers determines their values.
In binary notation:
1 is one
10 is two
11 is three
100 is four
101 is five
110 is six
111 is seven
1000 is eight
and so on.
With 5 digits you can count from 0 to 31, enough to represent all 26
letters of the alphabet with 1=A, 2=B and so on:
00001 is one and also "A"
00010 is two and also "B"
00011 is three and also "C"
11000 is twentyfour and also "X"
11001 is twentyfive and also "Y"
11010 is twentysix and also "Z"
On the binary rings, there are 5 parallel tracks running around the ring,
each track representing a digit. The track is engraved for 1 and left
blank for 0.
