If you think your cellphone is smart, just wait until quantum computing comes along. Researchers this week announced a breakthrough in the technology.
Researchers at TU Delft in the Netherlands have managed to bring two electrons, three meters from each other, into a quantum- entangled state. This result marks a major step towards realizing a quantum network that can be used to connect future quantum computers and to send information in a completely secure way by means of 'teleportation'. The results have been published online on April 24 in Nature.
Check out the article at Phys.org to read more about how quantum computing will work. It's a kind of magick.
