Quantum computing has long been lauded as the future of computing, perhaps as the future of technology. That said, engineering a quantum computer that functions under normal useable conditions is no easy task for researchers.

One of the biggest hurdles that quantum computing researchers have had to work on addressing is handling the temperature that these devices must work at. Historically, quantum computers have only worked at extremely low lab-grade temperatures. At around -460 degrees Fahrenheit, quantum computers find their optimal working temperature. As one might be able to guess, that's not an easily achievable temperature for just any room. 

All that said, researchers have just discovered a new way that allows quantum computers to function at room temperature. This could severely decrease costs and decrease the barrier to entry into creating a quantum device.
