    This is video from the article in Nature. I found it quite interesting although it seems there is some way to go until we see it in production. Not that I know a great deal on the subject so could be quite wrong

    Thanks CountBartok for the video link. Seems the chip is very heat sensitive 1 Celsius and complete failure :O

    I'd take this over a silly quantum computer any day.

    I've never seen an optical bench anywhere near that tidy. I call lies.

    What's that picture from "Wars of the Silver Pawns" got to do with it?

    Between this and quantum computing we should see some really nice advancements in the next 10-20 years. I'm hoping this all develops quickly.
