+ - Scientists Have Made the World's First Quantum Router->

Diggester writes: While people get excited about future internets being powered by quantum particles, nobody really knows how that's going to work yet. But Chinese physicists have taken a step in the right direction, by creating the world's first quantum router.

If it can be made to work on a large scale, quantum information will transform the way we send data: instead of sending just the 0s and 1s of digital code, quantum communication can send information in a superposition of states that represent both 0s and 1s at the same time. It's cool, and it's crazy.
