Base 16



I believe base 16 (Hexadecimal) is a much better number system than our current base 10.
This is my attempt to propose a new number system.
Please submit a comment below with any ideas.

Symbols

There is a good document proposing new symbols: arxiv.org/pdf/1707.03751.pdf.
The document suggests the symbols  to replace the common 0123456789ABCDEF.
(If symbols are not visible, see this image)
The font was taken from github.com/valdisvi/HexEditorPlugin and modified for this website.

Here is an idea of how 16 symbols could be put on a keyboard using only 8 keys (example)

Naming

I am not sure what to call this number system. Hexadecimal is made up of six (hex) and ten (decimal), which doesn’t make much sense when not using base-10.
Here are some ideas:

Words/Speech

Names for different things.
#TODO

Time

I have created a new time system.
Read about it here

You may consider to show some example calculations with the two systems to compare complexity and clearify saved time and space.
