Celebrate International Pi Day and Einstein’s birthday with the world's first PiCycle
Today, Wednesday 14 March (3.14), is International Pi Day as well as Albert Einstein’s birthday.
Inspired by Malaysian artist Yau Hoong’s sketches, artist Tadas Maksimovas and designer Martijn Koomen collaborated with WE ARE Pi to build the world’s first rideable PiCycle. Pi is a symbol that never ends or settles into a permanently repeating pattern, and is a constant source of inspiration for the WE ARE Pi team.
The company itself was founded on March 14th 2011, which by complete coincidence is of course Pi day! The PiCycle is the perfect expression of WE ARE Pi’s mission to enthusiastically support ideas that move the world forward - a celebration of mathematics, ingenuity and design, with a fun and cultural twist.
After March 14th the PiCycle will be displayed in Amsterdam at various museums and exhibitions to contribute to the ongoing engagement and education of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

In the meantime, Happy Pi Day!
