In this exhibit the visitor is challenged to send morse messages, by us-ing a morse key and a morse code. The score is displayed by an on screen counter.
Morse code is a method for transmitting information, using standardized sequences of short and long pulses, commonly known as “dots” and “dashes”, in the place of letters, numbers and special characters in messages. Morse code was originally created for sending electric telegraph in the mid-1830s, and was also extensively used for early radio communication beginning in the 1890s.
