by itninja In the course of our technological history, we have seen devices start off as a huge (and often heavy) devices. However, as the demand for more power in compact devices grows, the technology engineers provide us with our demands. Hence, we see our technology, more specifically in Cell-Phones and Computers, becoming smaller. The scientists from GE Global Research are now performing tests on a turbine that is approximately the size of a desk. But more interesting, is this mini-turbine has the capabilities of powering a small...

Before one can fully understand the advancement here, one must first understand what quantum computing is In essence, quantum computers are a special computation device that goes off quantum-mechanical phenomena. This is different from your average, typical digital computer that works on regular transistors. While digital computing makes use of binary digits (1 or 0) for data encoding, quantum computation uses Quantum Bits (Qubits). This means that the digits can be a 1 or a 0, or both at the same time. This concept was first brought...
