This is really more of a research tool than anything. Almost like buying a chemistry set compared to buying an acid-bath cleaning solution.
The people who would be interested in this would be those looking to develop quantum-processing architectures and methods. It doesn't really sound
like it will ever, in and of itself, be a computing solution.
I think we may be seeing more of this company in the future (perhaps as a bought-out branch of an existing computer company). They seem to have a
good business sense. They realize they have no real hope of developing their own quantum computer, but knew they could solve the problem of observing
the function of quantum processors.... and sell it to companies and individuals currently aspiring to create their own quantum computing solution.
Well played. I expect they'll be around a while.
