Quantum physics condensed into a single t-shirt!
- Glow-in-the-dark t-shirt showing Schrödinger’s Cat
- In the light, the cat is “alive”, in the dark it is “dead”
- Depicts (a simplified version of) the most famous quantum-physics thought experiment
- Machine washable at 30 oC
The most famous cat of all time (well, apart from Garfield) is without a
doubt Schrödinger’s Cat. In a legendary thought experiment, the
Austrian quantum physicist (1887-1961) proposed a state in which a cat
can be dead and alive at the same time!
The same concept holds true for our Schrödinger’s Cat Glow-in-the-Dark T-Shirt!
In the light, you can see a cute cat sitting in a box, clearly showing
the feline is alive. But when you switch off the lights, you’re in for a
surprise: a skeletal cat has replaced the living cat and the sign on
the box indicates that the cat is, in fact, dead. Unlike in the
experiment, special glow-in-the-dark paint allows the cat to transcend the boundaries of physics as long as the t-shirt has managed to “charge up” beforehand.
The t-shirt is machine washable at 30 oC; higher temperatures will harm the (alive) cat’s fluffy fur ;).
