Super-fast quantum computers are now a step closer to becoming a reality, thanks to a breakthrough by scientists.
Edinburgh and Manchester University researchers have created a molecular device which could act as a building block for super-fast computers.
They have created components that could be used to develop quantum computers, which can make intricate calculations faster than conventional machines.
The academics used molecular scale technology instead of silicon chips.
They achieved the breakthrough by combining tiny magnets with molecular machines that can shuttle between two locations without the use of external force.
The manoeuvrable magnets could one day be used as the basic component in quantum computers. Very Interesting

Seriously, Terminator is FICTION. Yes, it features AI, yes AI exists in the real world.
But sorry, no, we are not going to have a SkyNet take over the world with machines that hunt & kill humans.
Get a grip on reality.
