Last week I was in Boulder for a workshop on ion trap quantum computing. Basically nearly everyone who is working on ion trap architectures for quantum computing was there, which was pretty incredible. A highlight of the workshop, besides the excellent experimental results, was that I got to see one of the participants describe how the ions will be shuttled around using his feet and then turning this description into a dance step. The ion trap boogie, or something like that. Won’t it be great to see the actual boogie in the ion traps?
