Map Project Office and Universal Design Studio have worked with IBM to create the Q System One, the world’s first quantum computer intended for business use.
The computing giant partnered with the British design studios to find an integrated form for the quantum computing system, which carries out calculations in a different way to traditional computers and does not rely on binary digits (bits) with definite states.

Map and Universal Design Studio told Dezeen that the computer represents a milestone in the nascent field of quantum computing.
