They demoed three problems — Protein matching, a classic seating arrangement problem, and a 9x9 Sodoku puzzle solver — which all demoed nicely. Some of the reaction is cautiosly optimistic and some is downright skeptical. It's still not proven to be a "true" QC — as it's based on a adiabatic design CPU manufactured in niobium and aluminum. D-Wave plans on improving the qbits to 1024 in two years, allowing public testing via the internet, and having it's first sale by mid 2008."
