# Is quantum computing real?

## Question:

Is quantum computing real?

## Quantum Computers:

Quantum computers are machines that use quibits instead of binary as a mechanism for computation. Quibits consist of ones, zeroes and a superposition of the two.

## Answer and Explanation:

The possibility of quantum computing is real. However, as of the first half of 2019, no one has built a reliable, functional quantum computer. There is a great deal of ongoing research into this area.
