Arduino Meets Quantum Computer | Hackaday



Quantum computer systems aren’t fairly prepared for the house lab, however since there are methods to hook up with some over the Web, you possibly can experiment with them extra simply than you may suppose. [Norbert] determined to interface a giant quantum computer to an ordinary Arduino. Why? Effectively, that isn’t essentially clear, however then once more, why not? He explains primary quantum computing and exhibits his setup within the video under.

Utilizing the IBM quantum laptop and the open supply Qiskit makes it comparatively simple, with the Python code he’s utilizing on the PC appearing as a hyperlink between the Arduino and the IBM laptop. After all, you may also use simulation as a substitute of utilizing the true {hardware}, and for such a easy venture it in all probability doesn’t matter.

Granted, the demo is fairly trivial, lighting an LED with the state of qubit. However the approach could be helpful in case you wished to, say, collect data from the true world right into a quantum laptop. You must begin someplace.

We’ve checked out quantum computers earlier than. They inform us it’s the subsequent massive factor, so we need to be ready. Qiskit is certainly one of several options obtainable at the moment to make it simpler.
