"you won’t be building a quantum computer and putting it on your desktop anytime soon"
Why does that sound like one of those quotes we'll all be knowingly chuckling over 20 years from now? MIT builds a 5-atom quantum computer. And, oh yeah, the University of Innsbruck in Austria helped.
I predict that with a few more atoms the computer will become self-aware and design quantum computers that anyone can build on his or her own desktop.
