Specially constructed transcendental numbers

Numbers known to be transcendental include ones whose digit sequences contain 1's only at positions n!, 2^n or Fibonacci[n]. Concatenation sequences, as well as generalizations formed by concatenating values of polynomials at successive integer points, are also known to yield numbers that are transcendental.
