not 100% sure on what i'm reading but it sounds atom smashingly big.

what kind of problems will quantum computers solve? sounds like we are still far off from a working prototype

3.2 ms? If it can solve a problem in less than that, then no issue at all, it can transmit the result to a "traditional" computer and then go to sleep.

Quantum computing just sounds so cool to me and I enjoy reading about it even though I will never understand it, nor that I would want too :)

Am I the only one who is always gladdened at not pursuing a degree in physics when I see an article about quantum computing?

edit: I mean, I consider myself a pretty smart guy, but that stuff just 'hurts muh brehn' :(

So they put the watchamachallit into the thingamajigger so the angle of the dangle is directly proportional to the heat of the beat?

@upgrade_1977

Yeah!

A second laser fired at the same frequency as the first but with the opposite polarization, which enabled the researchers to convert the spin back to a photon, revealing the quantum state information being held first in the original photon, and was transported through the wave.

This actually sounds quite much the way Pulse Rifle from Unreal Tournament makes it's burst shots of plasma...
