Unformatted text preview: computer has proved impossible.  and  both acknowledge that quantum logic gates have been made, but anything more than that has proved illusive. Quantum computers are based on qubits, who have two states which represent a binary on or off . Even though the creation of a quantum computer has not occurred, there have been many advancements because of the research, including both theoretical and practical results . Hopefully, one day a successful quantum computer will be made; the switch to quantum computing, should in theory, not be difficult because today's computers only operate on a machine language based on a binary representation which would have a one to one correspondence to the rotation of qubits.
