Universe Splitter

    I stumbled across this app for iPhone which may appeal to those favoring the many-worlds interpretation of QM:

    I thought it was cool that an app can actually run a quantum experiment each time you use it. I saw mention of it on a Sean Carroll blog defending EQM.

    While it may or may not split the universe, it would seem to allow you to make a completely random decision. And I can't think of many examples where quantum effects can noticeably influence daily life.

    Makes me wish I had an iPhone but unfortunately I have Android.

    I some how doubt that the app actually talks to a lab. More likely just generates a pesudo-random number :)
    Still a neat app.

    I don't know about this particular app, but there are true (quantum) random number servers available. E.g. https://qrng.anu.edu.au/
