Interactive physical quantum computer. Capable of making quantum algorithms as puzzles. Made using magnets.

The schematic, using a raspberry pi, 16 hall effect sensors and 2 MCP3008 interfaces.

The hall effect sensors will sense different sculptures [python GPIO] (representing gates), translate this into a functional quantum circuit [python quantum simulator/qiskit], and draw the result on a screen (as density matrix) using [python processing].

Python Qiskit example (generated by ChatGPT):

from qiskit import QuantumCircuit, execute, Aer

# create a quantum circuit with two qubits
circuit = QuantumCircuit(2, 2)

# apply Hadamard gate to each qubit

# measure the qubits and store the results in classical bits
circuit.measure([0, 1], [0, 1])

# simulate the circuit on a local quantum simulator
backend = Aer.get_backend('qasm_simulator')
job = execute(circuit, backend, shots=1024)
result = job.result()

# print the results


Python MCP3008 Hall Effect Sensors on Raspberry Pi example (generated by ChatGPT):

import spidev

# open a connection to the SPI bus and the MCP3008 chip
spi = spidev.SpiDev(), 0)

# read the values from two hall effect sensors connected to channels 0 and 1 on the MCP3008
def read_channel(channel):
    adc = spi.xfer2([1, (8 + channel) << 4, 0])
    data = ((adc[1] & 3) << 8) + adc[2]
    return data

hall1 = read_channel(0)
hall2 = read_channel(1)

# print the values to the console
print("Hall effect sensor 1: {}".format(hall1))
print("Hall effect sensor 2: {}".format(hall2))
