I haven't looked into quantum computing in a while myself, the last time
I looked at it the prototypes were all still toys, and it was mostly
theory. I probably won't see a fully functioning quantum computer in my
life time and I'm still young :) That said, the whole area of quantum
computing is a play ground for theoretical physicists and applied
mathematicians wanting to play games, and the whole area has spawned off
much technology and industry as a result of the research work as
engineers try to implement the ideas better as time goes by.

quantum computing is indeed a god-made absurdity :P
