This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi. http://www.4000000pi.com/ (sorry, Flash…)

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:

We know that people are marrying later in life, but that’s not the only shift. The whole relationship timeline is stretching.

Listening to music is overrated.

Facebook took the biggest hit in the past three years. Snapchat and Instagram got more likes.

This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi.
