What is binary code?

Binary code is the language that makes our modern lives possible! It's a coding system using zeros and ones to represent a letter, digit, or other character in computers and electronic devices.

Every character on your UpCode, including spaces, consists of a series of eight zeros and ones. For example, the letter "a" is represented in binary code (ASCII) as "01100001." On your UpCode, one color represents "0" and the other represents "1."
