Quantum "Photonic" Computers a possible reality?

A Photon is a particle of light (if I am not mistaken) does that mean we will soon be able to make computers out of particles of light? I have heard of some other interesting types of computers being researched.

What are the moral consequences of these developments inn technology? Are such systems stable and what potential is there to use complex machines inappropriately/maliciously? If you are able to control the functions of a Computer the size of an Amino Acid there must be the ability to influence the Biological systems of Organisms. I am excited whenever I read editorials about new age research but I can't help but feel like there is opportunity for failure and disaster in technology developments.

  1. I am following you now! And already took a look at the protein chip article...Is that interesting or what?

    Why do you want to add protein in smoothies? I asked the same to the gym's dietician and she doesn't recommend it much and it's better to include protein like beans and lenses in your everyday food.
    I will research more about protein in smoothies with a good taste and will poste a recipe in the blog
