Techworld is reporting that D-Wave, a heavily funded Canadian company, plans to debut a "quantum computer" next week. This computing device "can carry out 64,000 calculations simultaneously (in parallel 'universes'), thanks to a new technique which rethinks the already-uncanny world of quantum computing."
Parallel Universes? Sounds like Star Trek to me, but judge for yourself at D-Wave's website - if nothing else they have some neat pictures. link
