For almost a quarter century, the laws of Quantum Physics had been taking the world by storm in ways that no one even noticed – USB drives, for example, use quantum tunneling to rewrite their data. Certain laws, such as the Law of Quantum Entanglement – where by two particles can exist in two states at the same time – were theoretically going to change the way we used, designed and built computers.

Early last spring, a team of international researchers made a huge, and potentially culture-rocking announcement. They built a processor that utilized and preserved the entanglement process, creating a processor with speeds that make today’s top of the line models look like antiques.
