Quantum chess soon to come to life



Chris Cantwell, the University of Southern California graduate student who is the brainchild of quantum chess seeks to bring the game to life.
Though, more than 1.5 million people have watched Paul Rudd challenge Stephen Hawking in the game of quantum chess in the video titled “Anyone Can Quantum” which is fictional, the game is not real yet as Cantwell is looking for funding to bring it to life.

Since March 2014, Cantwell has been working to develop a fun, playable version of quantum chess and his work eventually came to the attention of Caltech professor Spiros Michalakis, who helped Cantwell continue to develop the game until it was simple enough for a player to master.

During his University of California Quantum Summit, Caltech ended up using quantum chess as the showpiece of “Anyone Can Quantum,” making it a form of publicity.
Cantwell now seeks to create a commercial version that anyone can play with some financial help as he plans to kick-start a campaign on February 15.
