Paul Rudd and Stephen Hawking Play Quantum Chess Match
Have you ever heard of Quantum Chess? It’s a real game as if regular chess isn’t hard enough!
This awesome video pits actor Paul Rudd against noted Physicist Stephen Hawking in a epic game of Quantum Chess that determines our future. (Narrated by Keanu Reeves)
A great little video to start your weekend. I think wee should do more of this for regular chess. Although it has clearly been exploding in popularity in recent years, so many people feel that chess is so unapproachable. It reminds me of the video chess match between Carlson and Rainn Wilson. Seriously, chess is for everybody, at any age. Chess does not need to feel intimidating!
Here are the details on the movie:
