Quantum Game with Photons in your Browser
April 24th, 2018 PIOTR MIGDAL Data Science Consultant, Warsaw

Quantum mechanics is considered to be hard to learn, unintuitive, and perhaps even spooky. I believe it’s none of these -and I want to show it with a open source web-based puzzle game. This game features a simulation of a single photon wave function and common optical elements like polarizing beam splitters and quarter wave plates.

Not unlike other science-based game (e.g. Velocity Raptor) it teaches physics by challenges, exploration and trials & errors, rather than via presenting the mathematical formalism. Does it sound strange? It shouldn’t -a child typically plays with a ball before learning about Newtonian dynamics!
