Idea:
Try to build computers with quantum nature of physics used in software/hardware integration (rather than just ``accidentally'' as reason why some hardware components work).
Bleeding edge Physics (in the sense that quantum physics is functional as Engineering, but somewhat open as Physics).
and  serendipitously  ...
bleeding edge maths. Proposals for addressing the quantum computation challenge use mathematics from several areas (including category theory, diagram algebras, quantum groups, algebraic representation theory, Ktheory, integrable systems, statistical mechanics, qspin chains and so on).
