I’m playing around with quantum mechanical superposition and hydrogen wave functions again. This time with really simple 2 dimensional renderings. I’ve been trying to get a grip on some of the basic principles and this is what I’ve got up so far.
I’m learning a lot, and there is quite a bit to be gained from playing around with something as simple as this. My end goal for this is to bring back some of the simple demos from the genesis of this blog, and build more of a directed walk through of some of the principles and features of the system. Up to this point, the demos have left it completely up to the user to figure out what to do with them. Ideally I’d like it to be so inviting and obvious that viewers just give it a go, but that’s probably too ambitious for the topics.
At work I strive to build systems that leave the simple stuff simple and make the complicated stuff manageable. Trying to eliminate the complexity from something that is naturally complicated is just going to end up covering it up and frustrating the user.
