Albert may be the world’s coolest cloud-based service—literally. The only quantum design platform of its kind, Albert lets anyone access and manipulate atoms cooled to a billionth of 1° above absolute zero, from their own computer. With this technology, once accessible only to professional scientists but now free to all, researchers can remotely use Cold-Quanta’s quantum-matter machine to design potentially transformative innovations. One possibility: autonomous vehicles that never lose their GPS signal. The beta version of Albert launched this year, with an official release coming soon.
