    For sure there is.
    For example, every time a quantum object interacts (collides) with another, you will be likely to observe entanglement of position.
    In a first look, entaglement of positions read as follows:

    At a time t after the two objects having interacted...
    If object A is in position 1, object B is in position 2
    If object A is in position 3, object B is in position 4
    If object A is in position 5, object B is in position 6
    If object A is in position 7, object B is in position 8

    and so on. But this is not the whole story, for this does not account for interference effects, which are part of the entanglement phenomenology.
