We have all seen image, video and document converters, but how about going behind the scenes and see how things work inside our machines. Here’s a converter that allows you to convert your text into machine code which is the binary number system.

The **binary numeral system**, or **base-2 number system** represents numeric values using two symbols, usually 0 and 1. When talking in terms of computers or circuits these can either represent a circuit that is off (0) or a circuit that is on (1).

If you want to see how your text you type is converted into a series of 0’s and 1’s, this is a great tool to find that out. Simple type in any text and click * encode*. The piece of text will then be converted into 0’s and 1’s. On the other hand, if you are ever trying to make sense of a binary code, you can just enter it in this tool under Binary and click on

*to convert it into text.*

**decode**The tool also offers text to hex and text to octal conversions.
