First Quantum Computer to be Announced Next Week

D-Wave, a company making quantum computers, claims the first quantum computer will be unveiled next week. If this really happens it could be big. Quantum computing can theoretically enable a massive increase in computing power. The question is what will it cost? If this technology is viable it also ups the ante in the encryption field — because quantum computers can potentially crack codes that are today effectively beyond the limits of our present computing power. This could bring about a  new market for quantum crytography, such as that provided by MagiQ, which is invulnerable to being cracked by quantum computers.
