I'm curious if this could be used to teach kids to think in binary.
Arcane strings of zeros and ones are scary. But this displays familiar decimal numbers which obey binary rules—only powers of two are available, and they only ever combine together to double. Seems like it might teach some intuitive binary reasoning without being unfamiliar, confusing, and scary.
I found it fun and addictive.
Oh wow, what an addictive source of frustration.
