Agreed. Sometimes I feel people think it's hype because you can't play 3d halo yet and it's a giant lab worth of equipment.
As far as a tool for physicists because of what it is theorized to do, and apparently the theories are sound as progress is showing, the size or
conditions it needs to operate in are not of huge concern. That would certainly make availability easier when they are easier to manufacture.
However the holometer, and particle colliders don't seem to have people saying "but they need laboratories to function.
Even if we never leave sub zero, which isn't requires by theory at least, the equipment even in a huge lab, if functioning correctly and with the
processing power theorized is an incredibly useful tool for scientists for simulations.
Edit just to make clear for other readers. I don't view this as a "computer" in the same sense as a laptop. This is more like a particle collider,
or a theoretical physics observation equip, like a satellite, the theory here is from the very tip of QM applied science. It's not a computer 2.0.
It's like moving from a mechanical typewriter to an iPad.
