What was this gizmo [banbots.com] the first to do? Should be an easy one.

That's a nice translation but it still begs the original question of

What was this gizmo the first to do?

That thingy at the top right corner looked *almost* like an benzoid cycle. I was still asking myself how it did connect to the main body with *six* carbons...

Congratulations korkus2000! ;)

IBM's 7-qubit molecule:

This molecule is currently the world's most advanced quantum computer -- a 7-qubit quantum that IBM researchers used to conduct the first demonstration of Shor's quantum factiring algorithm.

[domino.research.ibm.com...]

The IBM scientists controlled a vial of a billion-billion (1018) of these molecules so they executed Shor's algorithm and correctly identified 3 and 5 as the factors of 15.

so since I'm on a posting frenzy:

It is the first quantum molecule computer (IBM's 7 qubit-molecule: C11H5F5O2Fe) to demonstrate Shor's Algorithm by correctly identifying 3 and 5 as factors of 15.

I think mac's page is destined for PR10. If there ever was an example to follow it would be this page!

I just need to stop the epileptic fits while viewing.

Well, I see once again I got home just in time to reveal the 'TRUE' answer to this weeks quiz. Upon verrrrrrry close inspection of the gizmo presented to us this week, I have come to the conclusion that you all are very wrong. I have to give you all credit for trying hard, but alas, you were WRONG.

This is clearly the patented "Gates Nano Mind Controll Unit", or GNMCU for short. As you can tell the 5 yellow thingy bobs attached by a rod type connector, are the 'neural' connectors. The 11 grey spheres are ofcourse the power source, which I have heared are a highly specialized methane conversion process accelerator thing. The methane is harvested directly from Mr Gates, and then stored in the 5 light blue spheres, by a highly classified process that I have heared to be rumored to involve some sort of anal implant.... ;)

The red spheres contain the 'Semi-Auto Destruct' system. What this does is to control motor and audotory functions of the individual the device is implanted into. And at random intervels it causes them to 'shut down'. You must then 'restart' these individuals by simulatiously pressing their nose, belly button and left big toe.....

The Maroon sphere contains a small explosive that will detonate, after you are done reading this information. So we will soon be able to tell those who are 'infected' and those who are not. Those who are, will not be posting any more.......... ;)

So, now that this has been cleared up, I now OFFICIALLY request to be dubbed the 'winner' of this weeks gizmo quiz.

Thanks for your support.

Thor
