Quantum Moves is a serious game aiming to crowdsource the problem of optimizing laser beam patterns used to guide atoms in a quantum computer. Don’t worry if you don’t get it. In Richard Feynman’s words: ‘I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics.’ Interesting project, though, that may result in a real quantum computer.
