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.


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

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


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:


Names for different things.


I have created a new time system.

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