Vi Hart’s Binary Hand Dance just got me thinking about all things binary. We at ForeverGeek seem to have a penchant for 1s and 0s as well. Just check out the archives, and you’ll find entries such as The Binary Ring and Binary Watch for Dad. If you are looking for some cool binary stuff, here are some of the more interesting ones that I found online.
Binary Wedding Cake
Obviously, this wedding cake was made for a geek couple. If you think those 1s and 0s were placed randomly, think again. The sequence is supposed to be code – a message for each other. Since we can’t really see the entire cake in the photo, we can only guess what geeky sloppiness the numbers stand for. ((By suicidekitteh))
Binary Tote Bag
Using eco-friendly canvas bags is the all the rage these days. I actually just did some grocery shopping the other day and had to get one of those supermarket ones. If you want a cool tote bag, though, this one will do the trick. Oh, and yes, the code translates to characters…guess what? Get the tote bag at Etsy. ((Binary Tote Bag))
Binary Code Shirt
Of course there has to be at least one t-shirt in this list! This Binary Code Shirt, obviously, spells something out in binary code. Can you read it? If you can’t, please don’t wear the shirt. You’ll just end up embarrassing yourself. If you can, then head on over to Curious Inkling for your own. ((Binary Code Shirt))
Thumbs Up Binary Clock
Here’s the good news: this clock actually exists. You can buy it on Amazon. ((Amazon UK)) Here’s the bad news: it’s out of stock. Still, this clock deserves to be mentioned. Not only is the concept cool – do some addition in binary to come up with the time – but it actually does look good in my opinion.
Binary vs. Friends Pin
We all know about the t-shirt “There are only 10 types of people in this world…”, don’t we? Here is a pin from Zazzle that adds a twist. Now don’t tell me that didn’t make you laugh! Get the pin for only $5.95. ((Zazzle))
There are binary shirts, and there are binary shirts – if you know what I mean. How about learning how to count in binary rather easily? Now doesn’t that shirt remind you of a certain video? Get this shirt for $16.99 at ThinkGeek. ((ThinkGeek))
You’ve got to start them young, don’t you? What better way to do that with your baby (or niece or nephew, or whatever) than to get one of these onesies? I have to say that this is one of the best binary accessories I have seen so far. CafePress Australia has them for AUD 16.00. ((CafePress Australia))
