Color Representations of Numbers

Each concentric ring represents a bit in a six-digit binary number with the innermost ring corresponding with the last digit and the outermost with the first. This binary number gets translated into red, green, and blue color channels, with the red channel controlled by the first two digits, the green by the middle two digits, and the blue by the last two. Rings with state 1 are colored with this resultant color while rings with state zero are black.
Use the slider to see what colors represent different decimal numbers or click the individual rings to change their state (which in turn changes the underlying decimal number).
