Visualizing pi (4 million decimal points worth of it, at least)

Pi

Pi is an irrational number and the project conducted by TWO-N might seem like an irrational project, but it yielded a mind-blowing visualization.

“We are representing 4 million digits at a glance,” TWO-N designer Hermann Zschiegner said to Mashable. “It would take an average person roughly three weeks to read out the numbers, but it only takes a second to look at our graphic.”

According to the team, “On October 17, 2011, Shigeru Kondo concluded 371 days of computer 10,000,000,000,000 decimal places of pi. Roughly 44 TB of disk was needed to perform the computation, and 7.6 TB of disk was needed to store the compressed output of decimal and hexadecimal digits.”

How ’bout them apples?
