Day 2 - Binary Numbers

Highlights of Day 2 included:

  • Saving an image from Photoshop in raw format and opening it in Audacity as sound

  • Transforming a gray scale images stored with 8 bits per pixel into 8 black and white images where each pixel is encoded by just 1 of the original bits

  • Creating games or activities to teach binary numbers

I also thought that John Simon’s “Every Icon” project was kind of fun. I created a D3 version that’s 8x8 instead of 32x32, so it actually moves through the icons a little faster. Even after 17 years, the original is just barely on the second row.
