D-Wave sells ‘D-Wave Two’ for $10 million.
D-Wave Systems has reportedly sold their next-generation ‘D-Wave Two quantum computer’ to Lockheed Martin for an estimated US$10 million. Lockheed Martin bought the first ‘D-Wave One’ computer two years ago for the same price.
The new machine is said to be 500,000 times faster than the first version.  Lockheed Martin will use it to create and test complex radar, space, and aircraft systems.
D-Wave plan to release a new processor every two years.

Printable, bendable battery developed.

Researchers at Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology have made use of nanomaterials to create what they say is the world’s first imprintable and bendable lithium-ion battery.

The technology could speed up the production of smartphones with flexible displays. It also makes the batteries more stable, and less likely to melt or explode than conventional batteries.
