Hexahue is an alphabet of colored blocks (consisting of 6 squares) of 6 colors, invented by Josh Cramer.

Hexahue has 40 characters: the 26 characters of the Latin alphabet (from A to Z), the 10 digits (from 0 to 9) as well as the comma `,`, the point `.` and use 2 blocks for `▮` and `▯` spaces (one all black and one all white). The other characters are shown in the following table:

A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | ||||||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | ||||||||

Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | ||||||||

Y | Z | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | ||||||||

6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | . | , | ||||||||||

The correspondence is 1 to 1: a letter / number always corresponds to a symbol (for letters, upper case and lower case are not differentiated).

Any message encrypted by Hexahue is in a rather colorful image format with a maximum of 9 distinct colors: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta, white, gray and black.

The symbols are made up of combinations of 6 colored squares grouped into a rectangle 3 high by 2 wide.

The letters are coded with the 6 primary and secondary colors: red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta and never have the same color twice.

The digits/figures are coded with 3 levels of gray: white, gray and black, with mandatory 2 squares of each shade.

The punctuation (the point `.` And the comma `,`) is coded with only black and white (3 black squares and 3 white squares staggered)

The spaces are either all black or all white.
