Google Buys a Quantum Computer

Google did not say how it might deploy a quantum computer into its existing global network of computer-intensive data centers, which are among the world’s largest. D-Wave, however, intends eventually for its quantum machine to hook into cloud computing systems, doing the exceptionally hard problems that can then be finished off by regular servers.

It’s not very interesting on the exterior, just another black box – actually I wonder if there’s even a computer inside the black monolith in the image below. More pictures of the interior of the quantum “mainframe” would be great.
