A visual representation of τ (“tau”, pronounced /taʊ/)
There is an argument for using τ (Tau) instead of π (Pi) in mathematics. τ = π/2.
Arguably this simplifies some mathematical properties and formulars, and makes them more intuitive.
This visualization is an exploration of τ.
This representation is keyboard-controllable!
