Quantum Moves

Play Quantum Moves and contribute to cutting-edge physics research.
Your task is to find clever ways of manipulating and moving atoms.
By playing, you help physicists in the epic task of building a real quantum computer.
This is your chance to push the boundaries of science!

Help build
tomorrow's
superfast
computers

Quantum Moves is the first gamified citizen science project of ScienceAtHome. The game was born out of the dilemmas and questions physics researchers confronted with when they took the challenge of building a quantum computer in the basement lab of Aarhus University. What is a quantum computer and why should you care? Read more here.

Confident that human brain is able to do better than even the most advanced computational machines available in the world, Jacob Sherson and his team decided to create the "Quantum Moves" game and invite everyone to play and get the chance to do front-line quantum physics research.

The idea of the game is quite simple: every time you play, your mouse movements are simulating the laser beams used in the real quantum lab to move the atoms onto the right pathways. Read more about the game elements and how they map to the atoms in the labs here.

This fun and addictive game lets you make an impact without any previous knowledge of the wonderful world of atoms. We train you through introductory games and use your ingenuity—not textbook knowledge—in the Quantum Moves challenges.

Precision and accuracy are key elements for obtaining high-quality data that can be then transferred into actual laser movements in the lab. Therefore, some of the Quantum Moves game missions are quite challenging; they have to be completed close to perfection in a very limited time. Don't be discouraged—we know you can do it!
