Hexadecimal Symbol

Was thinking about this project while walking somewhere the other day and was wondering if there was a symbol I could figure out that would represent it somehow. I thought that a hexagon might be a good place to start (even though hexadecimal is 16) for its connections with chemistry (aromatic rings) and materials (honeycombs, hexagonal close packing crystal structure). The dot and arrow are a vector acting on a center of mass. Also the dot is a symbol for a decimal. Thought I would keep it visually simple like the rest of the project seems to be going. Maybe I'll try to do some more variations on this later.

First try

Second try, changing line thickness
Hexadecimal 2
