# Random walk on pi

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?

Tammett is an autistic savant who memorized π to thousands of places.

Someone please do this with using golden ratio!

Nice and original visualizations of pi could be found here:
