Buy a ‘Virtual’ Piece of Pie on PI Day Number Geeks Celebrate PI Day March 3:14 PI Video Wall
PR Log - Mar 09, 2013 - “I want to create a Calculating Wall of PI that will continue to Calculate PI, and display the digits, longer than I’ll be on the planet. I want people from around the world to be able to control PI via the Internet, Mobile Devices, Tablets, Future Technologies, and for those close enough, be able to walk up and Touch PI” - Michael Droste, Educator
Here are the some of the Project Objectives:
Create a Redundant System of at least three, Scientific Level Computers, with Error Correcting Ram, and individual Server Storage, along with cloud backup, all Calculating the Same Equation
Create free mobile apps for all platforms to control the PI Wall with a synchronized PI calculation broadcasting to their app (along with the PI music)
Create 1000 Wall Animated Templates that People locally or via the net can use to control PI
Create A Local Control Terminal for the PI Wall Create Live Internet/App Controlled Webcams
Create a Base 10 Music System (numbers: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) That will Play the ‘PI Numbers’ as it is Calculated (volume not to exceed normal conversation level)
Create Extensive Education Materials for those who want to explore PI - on the Big Screen - from the simplest form to the most cutting edge, post doctorate level, mathematician geeky. “PI would will still stream and display on the bottom, but for those wishing to learn, they can use the giant wall as their computer screen,” said Droste
