From deep inside the sewers of Vienna to cutting-edge quantum computing labs to voyages into the minds of the world’s brightest thinkers, including the renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, The Quantum Tamers: Revealing our Weird & Wired Future explores the coming quantum technological revolution.

In the early part of the last century, scientists began to observe strange behaviours at the atomic and subatomic levels. Today, scientists are exploiting the “weirdest” and most counterintuitive principles of quantum physics, and their experiments will have far-reaching impact on how we live our lives.

Shot in HD in 16 cities, in six countries, and using dance, dramatization, and 2D and 3D animation, The Quantum Tamers shows how the new era of quantum technologies is going to rock our world.
