The Quantum Parallelograph: Exploring quantum physics

The Quantum Parallelograph from Patrick Stevenson-Keating on Vimeo.

To the average person the ideas and theories surrounding quantum physics are fascinating yet very confusing. However, Professor David Deutsch of Oxford University has recently pioneered a research project called The Quantum Parallelograph, which aims to explore these ideas and somehow visualise what is meant by the notion of quantum physics and multiple realities.

A user must set how far from their current reality they'd like to explore and then by using the Internet the device gathers information about the supposed "alternate reality" and prints out a description of what the user's parallel counterpart is up to.
