About

Many times I have thought that to myself that computers would work better if you could just "add a two" in binary code. Because of advances in technology, it is now possible to do even more than that. My name is John Jenkins and my invention is called Busco Quadnary. This difference between my invention and traditional binary is that you can program in four dimensions right out of the box. This has tremendous implications for 3d graphics and gaming. Today, we use what are called Z-buffers to simulate 3 dimensions. With the use of 3d engines, games are able to deliver a quality approximation. What would make this simulation even better, however, would be if we could allow four dimensions to be built into the computer, at the machine language level. This is what I plan to do.

Risks and challenges

As my bio suggests, I am not an accomplished programmer, but programming follows very understandable conventions which can be employed, such as Strings, Characters, Variables and Constants. I can never memorize an entire language, but I can be accurate. I can't code a thousand lines at once, but I can use tried-and-true methods to arrive at my goal, sort of like editing a video or animating in 3d.
