A new solution to support Moore's Law

Moore's Law, formulated by Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore in 1965, says the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. For more than half a century the law has held.

But engineers do not see conventional computers being able to support Moore's Law much longer. So it was exciting news when researchers at the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter controlled the spin of a single electron using only electric fields, clearing the way to make a super-fast quantum computer, in which an electron's spin can exist in both its states simultaneously.

Hmm, kind of sounds like a Presidential campaign.
