Wedding rings for geeks made with binary code on..

Mar 08, 2007
This is a pretty cool idea with writing on a binary expression on a ring. Everybody wants their wedding to be special. Geeks can now be unique by buying binary gadget rings for beloved ones. So if you do not have enough time or money to make a very big wedding just amaze everyone with a cool ring.

Binary ring uses computer form of storing data "1" and "0" this way you can write a personalized message on the ring. And turning the ring around will allow you to read the message.

Using binary code that would have only 5 digits you can count to 32. There are only 26 letters in English alphabet so you can number every letter and present it using those 5 digits.
  • 00001 is one
  • 00010 is two
  • 00011 is three
  • 00100 is four
  • and etc.


So you will be able to encode a cool note or a nice message on the ring. The ring size will only allow you to write a message 20 characters long. There are 5 tracks on the ring and the as you look at the ring the engraved track represents 1 and if it is blank it represents 0. It is a very simple idea and still very cool to be used by geeky people like me.
The rings can be made of two materials: either recycled gold or recycled platinum. I wonder why they are made from recycled materials, but maybe it's just the way they want it.

The other thing there is no place that would show that the message starts here so they got to think about it. It wouldn’t be nice if you would look half an hour at the ring trying to figure out where to start reading.

Besides, where can you find the "dictionary" to translate 5 digits into a letter? They got to think about that too.

Generally Gideon Weisz's idea is pretty cool and Geeks need wedding rings too. I loved the idea myself and think that you might like it too.

"I wonder why they are made from recycled materials..."

um... I'm really not trying to be rude, just helpful. try reading the home page of the site you found the ring, it explains the reason there.

BTW, I love the ring, and I'm not a Geek, husband is.
