Computer technology in the time of the Sixth Sun.

Méxica computing has its most ancient origin in the Nepohualtzintzin, an instrument similar to the abacus or soroban used to make arithmetical and mathematical calculations in the vigesimal system (base 20). In Náhuatl, Nepohualtzintzin is formed by the roots: ne - personal; pohual or pohualli - the count; and tzintzin - small similar elements. Its use was taught in the calmécac schools to the students dedicated to studying the night sky.
