ASCII CODE COMMUNICATION
(American Standard Code of Information Interchange)
by Su Jeung & Linda
Send your messages by using ASCII Code. There are no limits, and
people can make up as many sentences as they want. In addition, they can
send numeric messages.
Preparation and Equipment
One candle per person and bright colored handkerchief. Candles indicate
"o" and handkerchieves indicate "1" in Binary system. Senders need to move
their equipment from up and down. Also this experiment needs decoders on
Overall, this experiment was very efficient and fun. Due to our lack of
practice and planning, we had hard time sending our messages through. However,
we believe that well thought-out plan and sufficent understanding of ASCII Code
would enhance this experiment.
