D-Wave Deep Freeze

Just took a pilgrimage to Burnaby, British Columbia to visit D-Wave’s row of quantum computers cooling down for their coming out party. They look a bit like meat lockers, but with RF shielding.

 

Geordie’s dwave.wordpress.com has generated a fair bit of interest, becoming the 2nd most popular blog on WordPress yesterday… More at Guardian, EE Times, Gizmodo, TechWorld, and the ever-eloquent Inquirer:

 

"Boffins wonder if the outfit has really got a Quantum computer to sell as they were not really expecting to see one for another 20 years. Still you get temporal distortions when you mess around with parallel universes, and the machine has probably invented itself in the future and sent itself back through time."
