The Ones and Zeros of Computing

April - 2020

Things to do:

  • Start with Switches, then call then bits.
  • Single switch that changes a number from 1 to zero
  • Single switch that turns a light on and off
  • Two switches, two lights
  • Seven switches to make an LED type number
  • Transition to by showing how the one switch per segment for the nine numbers sucks compared to using binary bits and how many numbers you can make with that.
  • Show black and white colors via switches.
  • Show a black and white color picker that then sets the switches
  • Show a RGB color picker.
  • Show Letters ASCII
