This device consists of 11 chimes - 10 (with a value from 0 through 9) surrounding a central 'activator' chime. Whenever a numbered chime strikes the activator chime the value of the number chime is stored (or dialed or displayed or whatever). If used for dialing purposes, emergency numbers (such as
911 in most US states) would be ignored.
Inspired by [hippo]'s Dodgy Silent Chimes and designed specifically for [beauxeault]'s Global Zen MIDI, so props to them.-- phoenix,

The fishbone for the idea is neutralized by the croissant for the sub-title.-- angel,

Assign patterns of chiming to a number (ex. 1, 3, 4, 6, 3 ---> 5) to increase randomness some.
