Google’s latest browser game lets you build and run a quantum computer

Editor’s note: Google hopes a new browser game will help spark interest in the fascinating field of quantum computing. If you like incremental games or time management games, you will likely appreciate this freebie. Just be prepared to dedicate at least an hour or more to fidgeting…or maybe a lot more if you delve into it.

To celebrate World Quantum Day, Google’s Quantum AI team has teamed up with Doublespeak Games to create a game about building a quantum computer. Qubit is described as a “fun ride” that tasks players with building a quantum computer, one qubit at a time.

You will also have to protect your qubits from the global enemy of technology and heat while overseeing the collection and storage of information. As you progress, you’ll unlock upgrades to improve your PC and better defend against deadly heat and cosmic rays. Eventually, you’ll be able to automate much of the process and even reply to cross-departmental emails.

Google is also making the game available for use in the classroom and is eagerly awaiting feedback from teachers.

Those interested in going down the rabbit hole are encouraged to check out this guide from Google that explains quantum computing efforts and highlights the various components of the system. There’s even a quantum chess game with a unique set of rules to try.
