  • How to read a binary watch

    A binary watch displays the decimal watch in binary code. Values such as 10 become 10 (first column) 0000 (second column). There are two states for the display of a digit: 1 (on) and 0 (off). Therefore the time of a binary watch can be read as follows:

    The first binary watch consists of 6 columns. The hours, minutes and seconds therefore consist 2 columns each. The hours show on the left hand side, whereas the first column represents the tens digit and the second column represents the ones digit. Within each column you need to add from bottom to top. The first (lowest) value is a 1 (2^0), the second value is a 2 (2¹), the third value is a 4 (2²), the fourth value is an 8 (2³). In order to receive the correct hour, you only need to add all active values, whereas inactive values count as 0. A 0111 (from bottom to top) therefore represents the number 14, 1010 represents the number 5 and 0001 represents the number 8.

    The alternative view contains more values per column, therefore requiring only one column for hours, minutes and seconds respectively. The counting principle however remains the same.

Pfiss Philosophy - how we tackle things around here

Everybody has in his or her small world set up a more or less chaotic system to get things done. Our apps simply aim to bring at least some order to everyone‘s personal chaos.

The reason why our apps are special? It is all a matter of passion. This may sound simple, yet our passion to even the tiniest detail such as the pixel-precise position of a button or days of developing an ideal user interaction is what makes Pfiss apps simply feel natural in the end.

Designing such apps may not always be a very straight-forward process, but still we enjoy every single moment. We strongly believe that enjoying our work and our passion for coding apps are closely linked, resulting in an app that will make you smile once you open one of our apps

So, in a few words

The love to create apps that…

  • …are easy to use
  • …are easy to understand
  • …are efficient
  • …are powerful
  • …are making fun to use
  • …are fun coding for us as well!

» Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. «
