Quantum Mechanics Toys that Didn’t Catch On (ieee.org)

More accessible quantum games: Quantum Minigolf http://quantumminigolf.sourceforge.net/ and Quantum Tic-tac-toe http://cel.edu/Quantum/Tic-Tac-Toe/ (which seems to require Java - anyone know of a better version?)

Edit: looks like there's an Android version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gmail.sman... and iPhone https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quantum-tic-tac-toe-lite/id3...

Greg Egan wrote a story ("Border Guards")in which post-human players play a game of Quantum Soccer. Being Greg Egan, he actually created the game in Java.


I wouldn't call it accessible, though.

Or even more quantum games here: https://github.com/stared/science-based-games-list

No quantum equivalent of minesweeper for nukes? (probabilistic, with tunneling)

I'm not sure I'd call these "toys" but demonstration aids.
