Pi Day, which falls on March 14th, is named after the famous constant. Every year, ingenious projects develop to compute Pi's digits.

Several ways exist for calculating Pi's digits. Monteiro cited an article by Konstantinos Gavalas that compares Pi methods and includes Python examples.

Monteiro determined that Bill Gospher's series was the greatest fit for this application.

Onteiro chose a Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller to perform the calculations.

The RP2040 has one core for maths and another for some of the Pi-Py-Pi's visuals.

For example, as the calculation proceeds, the time required to calculate the following digit grows. Monteiro installed a Larson scanner as a keep-alive indicator.

Glen A Larson produced the television series "Battlestar Galactica" and "Knight Rider" in the 1970s and 1980s.

Both displays featured a row of lights that moved back and forth.
