Thanks Raunak!

Ah, I think I remember that proof. If I'm not mistaken, he made the projected line do kind of a zig zag from the origin. Really cool and clever stuff.

I get the feeling space-filling curves are criminally underused -- as cool as they are. One of my favorite applications is by the big G for geospatial coordinates: github.com/google/s2geometry

 

Yes! They should be used more. 3blue1brown had an awesome video on Hilbert curves. I used S2 (python wrapper) at my previous workplace. It helped a lot in making some location calculations easy. The docs are also well written
