Everything you can see around you behaves according to the laws of classical physics. When we zoom in to what is called the atomic level of individual atoms, electrons, or photons, we find that they do not obey the laws of classical physics. Quantum physics is therefore required to explain how they behave.
Quantum technologies are technologies that use the properties of quantum physics to do useful things. We use Quantum technologies already, in things like computers and lasers, however a new generation of quantum technologies are being developed, using the properties of entanglement and superposition, achieving things that until now, have been impossible.
