If I wanted anyone to explain the mind-bending nature of time crystals to me, it would be Dianna Cowern, aka Physics Girl. Dianna has a real talent for breaking down complex physics into digestible concepts that we mere mortals can understand.
In this video, she explains the recently theorized and tested quantum physics concept of the time crystal. As her editor (who she uses as her student guinea pig) says: “This sounds like something from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” He’s right. But time crystals are real and have huge implications for quantum computing.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
