What's the next symbol in this sequence?

 /\     /      /\     /             /\           
/ /\   / /    /  \   /        /\   /        / 
 / /    / /   \  /   \  /    /     \  /   \/  
  /      /      /      /             /     \  

Hint

$\pi$ and xor

Spoiler

Write the digits of pi on a 7-segment display and generate every symbol in the sequence by combining the previous symbol with the next digit of $\pi$ with an xor. Start with all segments off.

  • $\begingroup$ π = 3.1415926 and XOR = exclusive or. $\endgroup$ – Florian F Sep 19 '14 at 13:02
  • $\begingroup$ So, for example, how do you get the first symbol combining 3 and 1? $\endgroup$ – klm123 Sep 19 '14 at 13:32
  • $\begingroup$ Oops, the explanation was wrong. I reformulated it. $\endgroup$ – Florian F Sep 21 '14 at 1:11
