Dotsies is a Font created by Craig Muth in 2012.
Why should I care?
Since latin letters (a, b, c, etc.) are optimized to be written by hand, they take up a lot of unnecessary space. Your eyes have to move at a frantic pace from left to right to read. The letters in Dotsies words smoosh together, so words look like shapes! Get more screen space! Save paper. Have a more comfortable reading experience.
How much better is it?
It is significantly more horizontally condensed than normal fonts, letting about twice as much fall within the area of your field of vision that perceives fine detail. As to overall space efficiency in practice, the jury is still out. That won’t be apparent until many people have spent time acclimating to it. (Think how you began with large letters when you learned to read, but then preferred smaller typefaces after some time.) It is hoped it will eventually be legible by people when taking up half as much space. Imagine your phone having twice the screen space!

Each Word has one, two or three dots placed in a 5x1 line ( 5 tall, 1 long)
The letters are in 5 groups, these are:
j-l: doubles, spaced.
p-v: triples, centered.
w-z: triples, full length.
the numbers are the same that we use ( 1, 2, 3…) and so the symbols ( $,", %, & …)
here is a visual representation of the latin letters compared with the dotsies letter:
