    Craziness, quantum computing?!

    Can have a quantum 'switch' on while simultaneously being off haha.

    I have always been intrigued by quantum mechanics, read many books on it, but didn't think they would get away with something such as this so quickly. Truly amazing.

    That's just wacky. I love it. the possible increase in computing power with these things is immense.

    Not sure if we will ever see the application of this type of computing in our life times. I agree though, when we harness it and use it for practical means, it's gonna be crazy. The possiblities are almost endless.
