Binary Keyboard

Finally got my Emacs setup just how I like it:

Each bit is typed out from the least significant bit to the most significant bit (left to right). After all 8 bits have been entered, it will type out the ASCII value equivalent of that binary valiue.

Back in my day, we programmed with a paper clip, a nine volt battery and a steady hand, so this is all only reasonable.

Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.

    TWO keys? Luxury! We used unary...

    This results in much more accurate and precise ASCII values being generated, since each bit is hand-crafted.

      Then we can stare at some well crafted holograms with the focus of our actions intent to get those bits stacked and flipped to our desired consed structured depth array ... ... ...

      [].([].[]([].[]) ... ... etc ... ... etc ... ...

    But does Xkeycaps support it?
