For more on spin, check out: http://youtu.be/v1_-LsQLwkA This video was supported by TechNYou: http://bit.ly/19bBX5G A quantum computer works in a totally different way from a classical computer. Quantum bits or 'qubits' can exist in a superposition state of both zero and one simultaneously. This means that a set of two qubits can be in a superposition of four states, which therefore require four numbers to uniquely identify the state. So the amount of information stored in N qubits is two to the power of N classical bits. Thank you to Andrea Morello and UNSW. For more info, check out: http://bit.ly/17wZ7lt

Two developments in quantum computing in the past couple of weeks are the harbingers of a whole new era of smart technology. Google announced that it's building a quantum computer designed by a company called D-Wave in partnership with NASA, and government scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory revealed that they developed a secure quantum computing network two years ago! Get the details about these developments in this episode of SciShow News. Like SciShow? Want to help support us, and also get things to put on your walls, cover your torso and hold your liquids?

Jargon is easy; metaphors are tough -- try describing quantum computers to folks who have never heard of them. One of our editors gives it his best shot in fifth episode of the Instant Egghead segment of Scientific American's new video podcast. (iTunes, RSS)
