This isn't my work, but I've done some degree of work in the field of ternary computing through the ternary computer emulator Tunguska I whipped up a few years ago (I'm slowly working on a major re-write, but other things keep stealing my time). Which is kinda cool. I do believe I'm the only person in existence who has written something even remotely close to a C compiler for a base 3 computer.
Anyway, enough of my esoteric feats, this is pretty neat: "Ternary Computer is now emulated in binary microcontroller"
