Fascinating video. The "random" (not entirely) dark spots scattered across the graph are puzzling.

1234?

That was one of my sisters ATM PIN for a long time because she didn't know how to change it.

I saw this video come up on my feed this morning too smile


I had a thought about the mysterious blank spaces - I might guess that most of the PIN numbers on that chart are actually assigned and the user did not change them. And whatever random number algorithm is used to generate these assigned numbers has itself some "blind spots" where some numbers just do not generate. This is quite common in RN generators that the randomness is pretty random - but not perfectly random.
