We present a quantum solution to coordination problems that can be implemented with existing technologies. Using the properties of entangled states, this quantum mechanism allows participants to rapidly find suitable correlated choices as an alternative to conventional approaches relying on explicit communication, prior commitment or trusted third parties. Unlike prior proposals for quantum games our approach retains the same choices as in the classical game and instead utilizes quantum
