A roulette traced from rolling an ellipse inside a circle. [thanks] [code]

Take a rectangle, and cut it along a random line, then flip one of the pieces over to make a new shape. Repeating this gives a sequence of random shapes with an increasing number of corners and constant area. Note if your starting shape is a circle, it doesn’t change. [code]

Unrolling these circles fills a triangle with base 2 π r and height r (where r is the radius of the filled disk). Such a triangle has area π r². This does not serve as a complete proof for why this is the area of a circle, but can give you some intuition for why it should be. [code]
