    The Raussendorf Lattice

    You get to submit your own custom quantum circuits to be available for play in the game.

    You also join us in Tokyo (or Melbourne, wherever the development team may be) for an evening of very confusing talk about quantum technology and the fundamental physics that underly meQuanics. (Travel expenses not included) Date is TBD.

    Your name included in acknowledgements as a supporter in any scientific publications derived from the game.

    Physics Engine Access

    You will be provided with a binary version of the physics engine of meQuanics. The engine is designed to enforce the fundamental physics rules of the game and ensure that your results are scientifically valid. This engine can be interfaced with other front-end software to create automated players or used to further study and design topological quantum circuits for real world hardware.

    You get developer access to incorporate custom designed quantum circuits/algorithms within the physics engine binary (circuits can be compiled using our own conversion code from higher level algorithms, or accepted as initial geometric puzzles)

    Limited Access

    You get limited access to the raw database of meQuanics. Backers at this level will be allowed access to the optimisation record of up to a maximum of 10 puzzles (quantum circuits) within the meQuanics environment at anytime after the release of the full game and active data collection commences. Puzzles included can be specific quantum circuits submitted by backers at this level. Results derived from this access will remain the property of the backers at this pledge level

    Full Access

    You get full access to the raw database of meQuanics.

    This pledge level is aimed at individuals and organisations that wish to use the user data generated from the game to help design compilers and optimisers for surface code quantum architectures.

    Access to the database will be read only and be for a period of 12 months from the full release of the game, starting from the point where active data collection commences. Access will include all trackback data on circuit optimisations collected from the clients.

    This pledge level makes no guarantees regarding the amount of data collected. We will make every effort to make the game popular and if data collection is initially small, the initial 12 months data collection can be extended and renegotiated on a case-by-case basis.

    Data provided at this level is provided freely for use in other applications or optimisers. The meQuanics team will relinquish all IP rights to results derived from data obtained at this pledge level

    Access to the database beyond the initial 12 months can be further negotiated (with additional fees and/or partnership agreements) with the meQuanics team.
