Today, being 3.14 on the calendar, is Pi Day which commemorates the mathematical constant π (pi). It’s the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and is approximately equal to 3.14159 - but pi is actually a much larger number that has been computed to trillions of digits. Though it’s basically infinite. Chinese search engine Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) has decided to celebrate this insanely massive number by letting all the pi decimal places eat up the Baidu search listings like some kind of mathemagical Pacman. Check out the GIF here:
To try it yourself, just head to Baidu.com and search for π and watch the numbers chew up your browser.
Surprisingly, rival search engine giant Google doesn’t have a pi doodle up on its homepage.
(Hat-tip to Baidu international communications director Kaiser Kuo who pointed this out on Facebook)
