Quantum Wheel brings world-class game makers and quantum physicists together

From 15th until 17th February 2019 the Helsinki SkyWheel and Allas Sea Pool are the base for the 5th Quantum Game Jam; an intensive weekend during which game makers and physicists get together with the aim of creating games that harness the nature of quantum mechanics.

From 15th until 17th February 2019 the Helsinki SkyWheel and Allas Sea Pool are the base for the 5th Quantum Game Jam; an intensive weekend during which game makers and physicists get together with the aim of creating games that harness the nature of quantum mechanics.

Quantum Wheel is organized in cooperation with Finnish Game Jam, University of Turku, Aalto University and IBM Zürich. At use for the game makers the research group of Turku Quantum Technology lead by professor Sabrina Maniscalco offer their highly developed quantum simulator. Also available will be actual quantum computers usable through the IBM Q Experience, a cloud-based platform.

For the general public there will be the opportunity to chat with a physicist while riding on one of the gondolas of the SkyWheel as well as come see and play the games produced during the Game Jam then after on Sunday. Throughout the whole weekend, there will also be a playful art installation available for play for the entire audience. By playing Quantum Garden, anyone can be part of a scientific exploration.
