WolframAlpha StarCraft Easter Egg: Math of the Swarm

by Lambert Varias

Alex Wilhelm of The Next Web found this neat Easter Egg on WolframAlpha, the nerdy cousin of Google’s search engine. If you type the phrase “zerg-like curve” into its search field, WolframAlpha will crunch some numbers and generate this parametric graph:

starcraft-zerg-like-curve-by-wolfram-alpha

It’s a Zergling! WolframAlpha even dishes out a very long parametric equation that the graph supposedly represents. Eager to score a scoop as well, I typed in “terran-like curve” – this is how you become an investigative journalist folks, lateral thinking – and got this:

bono-curve-by-wolfram-alpha

I didn’t make that up. You know how good I am at Photoshop. Terrans, I guess U2, are Bono. To be fair, the man who can’t count to four also appears if you type in “protoss-like curve.” Go on, try it yourself.
