Is It Possible to Buy a Quantum Computer?
Apparently it is in fact possible to buy a quantum computer. There is a company called D-Wave that claims they have made the first commercial quantum computer. They called their first quantum computer the D-Wave One and the D-Wave Two System is currently for sale. They have so far not listed a price but it's obviously going to be incredibly expensive. Even though you are allowed to buy it, the computer was designed to be used by government and large companies. This model uses a superconducting 512 qubit processor chip which sits inside a cryogenics system in a 10 square meter shielded room. Quantum computers use qubits instead of bits like a regular computer. Regular bits switch back and forth between 1 and 0, but a qubit can be 1, 0, 1 and 0, or neither at the same time. So even though there are quantum computers for sale, you probably can't afford it.
