I review the potential and limitations as quantum analog and active systems of particles driven by self-generated waves at a fluid interface. Two experimental systems will be reviewed: walking droplets and capillary surfers. Walking droplets exhibit a number of quantum analogs and collective dynamics, including wavelike statistics in cavities, orbital quantization and spin lattices. Capillary surfers hold promise as a new platform for quantum analogs and for bridging the gap between dissipation- and inertia-dominated active systems.
