Encoder rings

Ring2
Nice concept… “encoder rings” via CrunchGear.

Encoder Rings began as an investigation in how to store precious or personal digital information. The result is a series of rings that are decorated with tiny blobs and holes, that actually represent letters in binary code; the code used as the basis for digital information. The user would choose a secret message 64 characters long, have the message translated into binary code and finally have a ring produced using rapid-prototyping.

  1. I would instead of putting the message on the ring I’d use the ring as a 64 bit private key for decrypting a message sent over any means. That’s more versatile and uses less carbon based materials.
