Follow-on video about the uncertainty principle: https://youtu.be/MBnnXbOM5S4

Interactive made by a viewer inspired by this video:

Also, take a look at this Jupyter notebook implementing this idea in a way you can play with:

------------------
Animations largely made using manim, a scrappy open-source python library. https://github.com/3b1b/manim

If you want to check it out, I feel compelled to warn you that it's not the most well-documented tool, and has many other quirks you might expect in a library someone wrote with only their own use in mind.

Music by Vincent Rubinetti.

If you want to contribute translated subtitles or to help review those that have already been made by others and need approval, you can click the gear icon in the video and go to subtitles/cc, then "add subtitles/cc". I really appreciate those who do this, as it helps make the lessons accessible to more people.
