(Phys Org2)   A new prototype device enables photon-photon interactions at room temperature for quantum computing which could be really cool, or not. Depends on how you spin it   ( phys.org) divider line

I thought the article was going to describe some hot photon-on-photon action but the headline was misleading.

Charming!

Quantim computers are the flying cars of the next generation. It'll always be ten to twenty years away.

You'll have to make do with Firmions.

Quantum dammit. Some qubit must have flipped in transmission.

I showed up for the quark puns.  You guys didn't let me down.  Top marks, folks.  I'm buying...bottoms up.

Oooh, hot photon on photon interaction!

It's not that strange. The Politics bosons have a weak interaction in the Geek tab for the most part.

Hey, it's a photon proton particle article.

Arrgh, weirdest phone typo ever.

The device in the article has enough beauty to give me a bit of a hadron, but the thread is disappointing. To tell the truth, your puns aren't charming.

Subby I'd love to see what you did there but that would screw up the quantum calculation.

Meh, next week it'll be something else big.  This is just a phase.

Hey man, I think the most powerful one just factored the number 35. That's pretty impressive!

When they finally master quantum computers we'll know just how fast it's working but we won't know where our data is?

It said only room temperature in the heading.

I was expecting more about fidget spinners.

I wonder if they tried arranging them in up,down,up,down, left,right,left ?

Goddamit sibby! Here's your upvote.

Wait...

That was just absolutely charming.  I admire the flavor of your humor.
