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 topology, category theory, diagram algebras, quantum groups, algebraic representation theory, K-theory, integrable systems, statistical mechanics, q-spin chains and so on).
