D-Wave Lab Tour part 1

Seeing the D-Wave facilities first-hand is a very cool experience. They look a lot like computers did back in the 60s. There are a lot of parallels to back then — we even built our own version of Spacewar! — except you get to play against a quantum computer. (Aside: this game — which was the world’s first quantum computer game — was called MaxCat. I own the only handwritten copy of the rules…. one of my most treasured artifacts!)

Here’s the first part of a series showing what you’d see if you visited D-Wave’s main experimental facility. Shot by D-Wave’s Dom Walliman — experimental physicist, author, and videographer extraordinaire, and starring Jeremy Hilton, D-Wave’s VP of Processor Development. Hope you like it!
