Quantum Computer

A quantum computer is a hypothetical computer, which in theory could produce a computer with a far higher processing capability than the current binary based computing model. Hence the term "a quantum leap". Simple put, the reason why a quantum computer would process data faster: is that, unlike a binary computer, each data unit in a quantum computer could be in more than "one" place at a time and "think" / "process" multiple "thoughts" at the same time. Of course, one data unit in a quantum computer would be something totally different to one data unit in a binary computer. The smallest piece of data in a binary computer is termed a "bit", whereas in a quantum computer - computer scientists - have referred to the smallest piece of data as a "qubit" or "qbit".
