We seek women volunteers to have one of their hands measured anonymously for a novel future online game … It combines product design, quantum mechanics, arts, genetics, cosmic rays, law, engineering, computing … Basically Life, the Universe and Everything. Rigorously. But totally cool, totally safe. Amazing and unexpected.

AND we need a large control sample of about 70 hands measurements … Future players will be quantum mechanically correlated with the control sample, randomized using quantum foundations. Literally. If you wish to be quantum correlated with the future, please come along on …….

Thursday 9 November, from 12:30pm-2pm – Beatrice Tinsley 111
