Quantum computing for dummies

If you have trouble comprehending that everything you see on the web resolves to Yes/No states in the form of binary 1s and 0s, you’re really going to have trouble understanding quantum computing, which among other things takes advantage of the quantum physics wave-particle duality inspired concept of something being two states at once. A bit can be either a 1 or a 0, a qubit can be both at the same time! It’s hard to wrap your mind around, so fortunately the folks at SEED Magazine offers this one page guide to quantum computing.
