Quantum computing comes closer as diamonds get spooky

International boffins are chuffed today to publish cunning research in which they demonstrate quantum entanglement - the "spooky action at a distance" so disliked by Einstein - between a pair of small synthetic diamonds: and, this is the clever bit, at room temperature rather than in a cryogenic chamber or similar, so bringing the long hoped-for quantum computer hardware that bit nearer.

Massive computing power. While ALL computers up until now operate on just 2 states of an atom (known as 1 and 0), a quantum computer could theoretically operate on all states of an atom, of which there are actually over 30. Just the movement from a binary to a trinary system holds exponential increases in power.
