Making use of the spins of the atom, a quantum computer can perform operations simultaneously, whereas a silicon-based computer can do only one operation at a time. The world of quantum computing will have computers the size of a few molecules, with speeds much faster than the present mainframes. A peek into the technology that could be a reality in a few years."
