Anneal with a Transverse Field via a Tunable Flux Capacitor

My head just exploded.

I have to wonder if it is a hoax, though, with someone named Geordi (okay, Geordie) saying, "We fix the temperature and anneal with a transverse field (equivalently by opening and closing windows for the qubits to tunnel)," and, "via a tunable flux transformer."

This is so freaking cool, last I had heard getting more than four qubits was "really freaking hard." If they have 16 in a portable demo, and plan on a thousand in the next couple years, ka-wow. As my friend Steve puts it, though, "What kind of frame rate can I expect from Quake 3?"
