    We all feel like the world is changing around us as technology seems to grow almost minute by minute. Two big changes on the not so far horizon are quantum computing and virtual reality. Here’s a tiny peak at what those things may mean – possibly for our world, and certainly for the world our children will be living in.

    It seems like tech White Hats are always trying harder to devise more secure ways to protect our computers and information, and Black Hats are trying just as hard to break those protection systems. Now there is a technology developing that may either make secure encryption effectively impossible – or just maybe make it unbreakable. It’s called Quantum Computing and it promises computing power beyond anything available today.

    So what’s our world going to look like in 15 years or so? No one really knows, of course, but it’s a good bet that two technologies are going to play a very big role in whatever life is like in, say, 2030 – quantum computing and virtual reality. Here’s why.

    In late 2015, Gordon Moore, after whom Moore’s Law is named, said that he thought the amazing doubling of computer power every 18 months or so that has been the case over the past four decades was probably coming to an end since current technology “eventually saturates out.” But there is a new technology in the wings that could make doubling of computer power trivial. It’s called quantum computing, and the first modest quantum computers are here. They could have a huge impact on what computers will be able to do in the not-too-distant future. Here’s why.
