    Just a little correction in the animation: Even though the current (ampere) goes from + (pluss/positively loaded) to - (minus/negatively loaded), the electrons actually goes the other way, from - to +. Just a small error. Otherwise, nicely done video, Kurzgesagt! <3

    So you basically take computer science and cut out the parts where you say that a bit can only ever be a 1 or a 0 at any given one time, and instead say that the bit is a 1 and a 0 at the same time until it is called upon, making every logic outcome that can be made all at once and only delivering the one that is needed.

    Google recently made a breakthrough in quantum computing and successfully conducted its first test on it. So, definitely this is not a far fetched idea anymore

    Why do you publish english videos with German titles and on a German channel. This is very annoying. If I am looking for english videos, I use english words, to look up. When I use german words, I am looking for german videos, only.
