[ExI] A room temperature quantum computer?

​To make a quantum computer using spin up and and spin down electrons
they'd have to remain in a state of quantum entanglement, for at least 100
nanoseconds, in the  July 18 2016 Nature Communications Balint Nafradi et
al report they have achieved 175 nanoseconds, and they did it at 300K, room
temperature. This is 100 times better than the previous record using exotic
graphene, and the material used was pretty cheap and mundane, the ash from
burned mothballs.

if you need to cool things down to 1/1000 of a degree above absolute zero
you're probably never going to have a quantum computer at home, but if you
could make one that would work at room temperature....
