Computers are about to take a quantum leap into the future

Scientists claim to have a breakthrough that will revolutionise computing.

A Canadian company with substantial venture capital backing claims to have built a "quantum computer" that will ultimately solve problems beyond the power of conventional systems - and will demonstrate it over a live link next week. (PC, Tech)

yah and I'm sure they'll be affordable, pssshhh

sounds cool but the protein "idea" like it says is really unstable. Just don't choose to not buy your next computer because of these guys.

,,,"ABOUT" to take a quantum leap??
.....in 20 more years. *rolls eyes*

From the start of the second paragraph:

"While most scientists believe a useful system is at least 20 years away...."

Why not?
I plan to synthesize protein in my basement on tuesdays. I have been waiting for this Pc for years!

i saw this tech being analysed.................
and theorized on a t.v documentary; panorama I think it was.
(nice find kevkev3!)

The professor demonstrating claims that once the tech is finalized the power tap is basically infinite!

pc's using quantum physics is total OWN4G3!!!!
Beam me up SCOTTY

Pretty cool. This is the kind of stuff our kids will be using. I think of this as a proto-prototype.

Thanks for a good article
That was a very interesting piece of information. My faith in science has been almost restored! :) Thanks bro for the article.

So maybe now we will be able to see those others dimensions through precise calculations based on Quantum physics! Just imagine all of the cures and changes that will happen once these computers start rolling out! I hope there successful and we see one of these rigs a lot sooner than twenty years!

CRAZY
Pretty amazing stuff... wild to think about computers that "literally stop working if you look at them." Science is nuts. :)

Agreed!
'If any interference, even thermal noise, gets in from the outside world, quantum states "collapse".' It would add a whole new meaning to the word 'computer security'!

BTW, I found the article here: http://www.ohgizmo.com/2007...

just wait for DJ to come here with some story about how ps3 will pwn this new tech...
...that guy never ceases to amaze me with the garbag--I mean, words of wisdom he comes up with.
