The familiar trigonometric functions can be geometrically derived from a circle. But what if, instead of the circle, we used a regular polygon? In this animation, we see what the “polygonal sine” looks like for the square and the hexagon. The polygon is such that the inscribed circle has radius 1. (There’s a very neat reason for this.) Since these polygons are not perfectly symmetrical like the circle, the function will depend on the orientation of the polygon. More on this subject and derivations of the functions can be found in this other post

Now you can also listen to what these waves sound like

This technique is general for any polar curve. Here’s a heart’s sine function, for instance

Eastern Bloc Cartoons: Krtek/Krteček (The Mole/Little Mole)

[x]

“Krtek was first to be seen in 1956 in Prague, when Zdeněk Miler wanted to create a children’s cartoon about how flax is processed. Miler wanted the cartoon to be understood in every country of the world, so he decided to use his daughters as voice actors, reducing the speech to short non-figurative exclamations in order to express the mole’s feelings and world perception. They also became the bottleneck of the creation process as they were the ones who got to see the whole film first, thus Miler was able to decide whether the message of the movie was able to get to children or not.”
