By Francisco Javier Aragón Artacho, “This is a walk made out of the first 100 billion digits of pi in base 4 with the following rules for the steps: 0 right, 1 up, 2 left, 3 down.” [via]
This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi.
Neat, I like yours as well.
This looks very atlas-like! You can almost see North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and sorta-Australia/Pacific. Very cool!
Please. Someone do it in base 6, and do it in 3D. Let 4 be forward, and 5 backwards…
It’s not really a *random* walk since the first 100 billion digits of pi are already known before the very first step is taken.
How would other numbers (whole, fractions, e) look in base pi?
Daniel Tammet’s picture of π
Tammett is an autistic savant who memorized π to thousands of places.
Someone please do this with using golden ratio!

What you get
We don’t all start our work days at the same time, despite what morning rush hour might have you think.
We know spending changes when you have more money. Here’s by how much.
Before you dive into the advanced stuff – like just about everything in your life – you have to learn the fundamentals before you know when you can break the rules.
The individual data points of life are much less predictable than the average. Here’s a simulation that shows you how much time is left on the clock.
