Here, Play With This Quantum Puppet

This week, Colorado-based startup ColdQuanta announced it has put “quantum matter on the cloud.” Which means—what exactly? To unpack this perfect pairing of buzz phrases: By “quantum matter,” ColdQuanta is referring to a collection of tens of thousands of rubidium atoms, cooled to near absolute zero. “On the cloud” means that by filling out an online application and gaining the company’s approval, you can poke and prod the atoms for free and from afar through its website.
