New systems are inspired not only by math but also by available materials. Availability of mirrored acrylic and the fact that the number e has a palindrome near its beginning (2.718281828) led to the Palindrome series. Using the sequence 8281828, values of digits determine diameters of circles cut from three transparent acrylic sheets, stacked with spacers between them and aligned on centers, to indicate the first 828. The value of 1 is engraved into the base orange sheet. Mirror reflections of physical cutouts represent the last three digits.
