Go to a particular spot outside the Oyster Bar in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, and murmur very softly into the corner. Dozens of feet away, you can still be heard clearly.It’s known as a whispering gallery, a phenomenon in which sound waves of certain frequencies travel along curved surfaces...
Nature 541 - January 3, 2017
Google, Microsoft and a host of labs and start-ups are racing to turn scientific curiosities into working machines.
Quantum computing has long seemed like one of those technologies that are 20 years away, and always will be. But 2017 could be the year that the field sheds its research-only image.

Yale physicists have created something similar to a Moebius strip of moving energy between two vibrating objects, opening the door to novel forms of control over waves in acoustics, laser optics, and quantum mechanics.
The discovery also demonstrates that a century-old physics theorem offers much...

LAKE WALES, Fla. — Today only a single company — D-Wave Systems — produces a commercial quantum computer, and even D-Wave admits its latest “2X” is no substitute for a supercomputer (except for a small set of optimization tasks). Within five years, however, all that may be changed.
