Modern day electronic devices rely on the interplay of two effects: strongly interacting electrons and quantum mechanics. Starting from classical physics we first use practical demonstrations to explore how an assembly of interacting particles obey very different laws of motion to a lone particle. Secondly, we outline the counterintuitive ramifications of quantum mechanics for electrons. Finally, we combine these effects to understand the phenomena driving modern day electronics, and address recent experiments that could inspire the next generation of devices.
