Hey guys, i whipped up a five minute game. I think it's acualy kind of fun. The object is to memorize as many binary didgets in 30 seconds as possible. My personal best is 20 without guessing any, 22 with guesses.

http://www.rival.ionws.com/misc/binary.exe

Do we have anyone who can break 30? I think that would be amazing if anyone could do it.

If you start building up a hex string as a pneumonic, you can probably get quite far. Each character would get you 4 levels. So at 8 characters, you'd get to 32.

I did the 10*5 thing but for certain cases there are better ways like 1100011100 can be easily thought of as... start with 1; 2 3 3 2. combining the pairs.

I't easier than memorize binary digits.

Just do the conversion binary-hexadecimal and you will learn 4 digits at the same time

I have done 28 the first time

It should be easy enough getting 40-50 digits with a bit of practice, just only 10 hexadecimal digits, instead of 19-20 you are trying to learn in binary ;);)

:)

42 binary numbers in 1 seconds. I AM ASTONISHED wooooooooooow

I think that someone must teach that guy (oooooooooh its spanish) about how to blindsolve, and he would be able to do memorization in about.... 10 seconds? lol

Amazing!

Scott, you must create another program For Ramon Campayo because he will learn the whole digits you put in your one in less than 30 seconds... hehehe

AMAZING

I dunno... maybe they "failed" at memorising something like 10,000 binary digits, but they succeeded at memorising whatever the figure shows? L8r.

I practised my visual memory some time ago, and I can easily memorize 10-12 digits (not binary) in a second. My record is 14, I think. I got 21 binary digits in 2 seconds and 42 in 9 seconds using the online thingy.

Got 49. I haven't got a real method for memorizing, so it doesn't really matter if it's 15 or 30 seconds because my limit seems to be around 40-50 now...
