Google’s quantum computer has reportedly made a real time crystal, which is essentially a new phase of matter that turns the traditional laws of thermodynamics upside down. To be more specific, time crystals are objects whose parts move in a regular, repeating cycle, sustaining this constant change without burning any energy. This means you literally evade the second law of thermodynamics. Read more for a video and additional information.
Time crystals are also the first objects to spontaneously shatter the time-translation symmetry, or the usual rule that a stable object will remain the same throughout time. Why? A time crystal is stable as well as ever-changing, with special moments that come at periodic intervals in time. Not only does it have order, but also perfect stability despite being in an excited and evolving state.
- More Power. The 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10750H processor provides the ultimate level of performance with up to 5.0GHz Max Turbo and 6 cores

- More Frames: Incredible performance paired with the fast 120Hz 15.6" Full HD thin bezel display helps edge out the win
This is just this completely new and exciting space that we’re working in now,” said Vedika Khemani, a condensed matter physicist now at Stanford who co-discovered the novel phase while she was a graduate student and co-authored the new paper.
