The single-electron quantum supercomputer?

from Futurity:

Physicist Jason Petta may have overcome a major hurdle to designing and constructing a radically new kind of quantum computer. He’s figured out how to manipulate the single electrons that very likely will constitute the new machines’ processing components or “qubits.”

Petta’s method alters the properties of a lone electron—without disturbing the trillions of electrons in its immediate surroundings. The feat is essential to the development of future varieties of superfast computers with near-limitless capacities for data.
