DescriptionQuantum Cat Clock is a real cat clock themed with science. The classic story of Schrodinger's cat is the inspiration behind this captivating app. Quantum Cat Clock is also a casual game: ask it a question by rubbing the cat's belly and an answer of "Yes", "No" or "Maybe" will appear, the cat will also animate into a dead or confused states to stay true to the story.

Quantum Cat Clock provides real science education. Four equations related to Quantum Physics are scattered through the app as clickable bookmarks to more in depth information on each. We have: the Heisenberg uncertainty equation, Einstein's mass energy equivalence, Stephen Hawking's black hole thermodynamics equation, and the equation for Quantum Entanglement aka spooky action at a distance.
Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics applied to everyday objects, resulting in a contradiction with common sense. The scenario presents a cat that might be alive or dead, depending on an earlier random event. Although the original "experiment" was imaginary, similar principles have been researched and used in practical applications. The thought experiment is also often featured in theoretical discussions of the interpretations of quantum mechanics. In the course of developing this experiment, Schrödinger coined the term Verschränkung (entanglement).
