Minecraft Meets Quantum Mechanics in qCraft

Jack Gardner



Ever wondered what Minecraft would be like if quantum mechanics were programmed into it? No? Well, Google's Quantum A.I. Lab certainly has and now you can play their creation.


qCraft essentially adds a few of the principles of quantum mechanics to Minecraft in the form of blocks that do their best to represent quantum entanglement, superposition, and observer dependency. While all elements of quantum mechanics may not be present, Google doesn't try to cover that up and fully admits that it isn't a complete recreation of those principles. Essentially, qCraft is supposed to be a fun way to introduce people to some of the core elements of one of the crazier and most mind-bending parts of modern physics research.



You can learn more about qCraft or download the mod on qcraft.org.


What do you think? Interesting? Pointless? We'd love to hear some of your thoughts!
