IBM brings quantum computing to the next level by relying on quantum bits (qubits) which are the basic units that carry data in quantum computing. Qubits can potentially work on millions of computations at once - far outperforming a PC. For more read Larry Dignan's blog.
This is a 3D supercomputing qubit device.
which is suspended in the center of the cavity on a small Sapphire chip. A qubit is about 1mm in length.
