No, the secret decoder ring with the embedded microprocessor running
the complete set of round-trip character set translation algorithms
in Yudit under Linux, and accessed through a UTF-8-enabled xterm,
where the user twists the ring rapidly to send UTF-8 in binary 0s and
1s, and of course the one-character LED readout on top.
Unless you would prefer to wait for the improved version with the
one-character-at-a-time OCR scanner top.
