Binary Palindromes Cutout

My current infatuation is binary palindromes (binary numbers that read the same way forwards and backwards, like 101, 110101011, et cetera). The patterns that they produce are lovely, so I made a little cutout of the palindromes that exist between 257 and 511.

  1. Just wonderful! My lovely aspie son is obsessed with numbers, pattern and form, and I can just imagine him doing this kind of thing in a few years time (not saying you have AS or anything!)

  2. Very nice.

    And of those 16 binary palindromes, one is also palindromic in decimal: 100111001 = 313!
